The importance of the communication media was highlighted as a way to spread ideas, projects, among others. Mentioning today the massive use of social networks to reach people and highlighting a new tool, the podcast, which is an audio piece that allows a varied content from news, tutorials and already a means to disseminate social projects .
In the afternoon, through a group dynamic, each team designed an advertisement that would convey the idea of a project and that could capture attention.
We offer our appreciation about the development of the seminar, as well as group dynamics and we end with the exam to obtain the certificate of participation. Then we did the cultural afternoon, where we could talk about our countries, culture, tourist places, food, etc, to local people from Dar As Salaam.
