Method Description

• A Facebook group is required. The facilitator is responsible from the creation of Facebook group, adding the learners and facilitat-ing the learning procedure. The reason of a close group is to pro-vide an online learning platform where the opinions and knowledge would be secret and not shared with third parties.
• The facilitator informs the group members either by a informative post or a video.
• The small groups are created in consideration of the participants. The balance between the groups in terms of diversity is necessary.
• One concept from five concepts (Power, Weakness, Freedom, Conflict and Resolution) is given to each group and they are asked to have a meeting with their group members and send a frozen photo to the general group..
• Each group is asked to make a Messenger or Skype meeting on the date and hour that they decide and they exchange their opin-ions and send their frozen pozition to each other. One of the group members combines the photos with a programme and sends it to the general group. The possible programme for mobile phones can be Canva or Pixlr (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.canva.editor) – (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pixlr.express).

• The submission of the photos is done in sequencesso that the learners can see comments on each photo. The discussion is done by comments on the below of each photo or live video. Messen-ger can be used for the live video.
• After the discussion, the facilitator can give some relevant docu-ments for the learners to increase their knowledge in topic of con-flict transformation.
