  • Summary: For this 2015-2016 academic year project, students designed a questionnaire to make sixteen-year-old teenagers aware of the importance of social media posts in finding work in the future. As a pilot study, the questionnaire was completed by pupils in the 4th year of ESO (Obligatory Secondary Education) from the Antoni Ballester secondary school in Miami Platja and Mont-roig del Camp. After analysing the results, students wrote a report to inform the school about their pupils' views. This service learning project can help schools make their students aware of the importance of personal reputation.
