This training of trainers is part of 7amleh's ongoing work to build the capacity of Palestinians in digital security.
7amleh - The Arab Center for the Advancement of Social Media is continuing to support the development of digital security trainers in the Jerusalem area. This most recently included a two-day training held on November 4th 2020 with 14 participants (4 men and 10 women). The trainers, Shatha Sheikh Yousef, 7amleh’s project coordinator and digital security master trainer, and Ahmad Zayed, a digital security master trainer, held the training in Bethlehem. The training focused on how to adapt the digital security training materials to fit the needs of trainees with different levels of prior knowledge and how to best teach the materials in an effective and interactive manner.
Shireen, one of the participants summarized the success of the training, “I learned new skills not only for my own digital security, but also skill to pass on to others.” Shatha concluded, “I was glad about the diversity of the trainees, which came from different fields. I think it’s very important for each person working with groups to increase their knowledge on digital security because of its relevance and our dependence on the digital space.”
