Tim Davies has blogged again about UK Youth Online, the barcamp he is arranging for somewhere in London on 17 May. It reminded me that I have totally failed to post about it yet.
What’s it all about? Well, according to the rather lovely invite Tim has designed:
We are a collection of youth workers, participation workers, youth website managers, innovators, technology developers, optimists, open minded sceptics, young people, consultants, practitioners, managers, and many more things.
- Between us we are interested in topics that include:
- Online information services for young people
- Supporting young people’s online interaction and activity
- Researching young people and the internet/blogging/social networking etc.
- Developing online tools and platforms for young people
- Exploring online technologies in education and participation
- Young people’s civic engagement online
- School councils, youth councils and local e-democracy
- On-line video and web radio
And we’re coming together on 17th May 2008 in London for a BarCamp – and informal conference where we set the agenda on the day and have creative, constructive and dynamic demonstrations, discussions and knowledge sharing.
Sounds good to me. I will certainly be popping along, and I would encourage everyone that reads this blog to do so as well. you can sign up using Tim’s nifty Google Docs / Pageflakes mashup wotsit at http://ukyouthonline.org.
Oh, and if anyone knows of a venue, do let Tim know. Thanks.
