Youth and Technology Workshop

Posted by on May 21, 2004

I’m pleased to announce that on Thursday June 10th, YouthLearn will be offering a free, day-long training in Seattle, Washington as part of the Community Technology Centers’ Network 2004 Annual Conference. The workshop will guide attendees through an exploration of how best to strengthen youth programs through the integration of technology, media making, and project-based learning. The day is offered through CTCNet’s C4T Program sponsored by the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Designed for program directors and educators who work directly with young people, the training will involve facilitated activities to help participants explore a continuum of student-centered activities with their own programs serving as models. Guided discussions, group activities, and training materials will help educators identify how best to enhance their current programming, moving toward more active and engaged learning.

As part of the training, participants will receive case studies, journal activities, and other materials to support the development of engaging activities for young people. Trainees will also be offered the chance to share an activity plan or other curriculum element for review by their peers.

For more information on the session and how to register, visit the CTCNet Web site at:

Registration deadline is June 4th. If you have any questions about the sessions please contact us at

Also, please stay tuned for another announcement shortly about additional training sessions offered by YouthLearn in other cities across the country and throughout the summer of 2004. We’re looking forward to meeting and working with our colleagues in the field and exploring how best to promote active, powerful learning!
