I am working on designing a social media program for a group of secondary schools undergoing a nationwide
ICT empowerment program in Nigeria. I am designing a social media curriculum to
be integrated into this ICT training, as well as a social networking platform
all these schools will be interconnected on. Kindly share your thoughts on
existing resources and tools I can use for the program.
I have some experience working on online learning platforms. If you are looking for a non hierarchical social networking site similar to facebook I might recommend ELGG. I used this social networking platform to have students and teachers collaborate on a video project. The interface was intuitive for the students to work with and led to an impressive final product in many cases.
An open source option like ELGG is nice because of the flexibility provided by the multitude of themes and plugins.
