This program was allowed the participants to create a set of values which would lead them for a brighter future in the era of digital transformation. This Project was content with two sessions

  • 1st session – Prerecorded movie exchange (using “Flipgrid”) which was created by participants. The movie session is about their cultural activities. Eg: The Sri Lankan students were presenting about Sri Lankan Cricket, Sri Lankan Food and also about Sinhala and Hindu New Year Festival.
  • 2nd Session – Real-time communication session. In this session participants were put into breakout rooms and gave them a chance to exchange their thoughts with other country students. Eg: Greetings, Oral presentation by delegates on Zoom, Casual meeting in a small room on Zoom.At the End of the Interactive Session the remarks were given by the organizing committee and a Group Picture was taken with all the participants.

All participants appreciated LNBTI for conducting these types of International Interactive sessions.
