Youth help elderly technophobes

posted on February 15th 2008 in Education with 1 Comments

School children in Wiltshire are to help older people in the county become more familiar with new technology.

Shock horror.  Some positive youth coverage in the media.

Quick Plug:  Tom Gaskin of NorfolkBlurb is leading a session at the Empowerment Symposium on "Young people and eParticipation: X-Factor excitement meets bureaucratic boredom".  He’s asked me to be part of the panel along with a team of young people and youth workers.  We’ll be trying to shake up the conference format a little and see how much the conference grandees are willing to learn from young people.  On the agenda is social networking, media portrayal of youth and whatever the audience brings up on the day.

    Brilliant who needs us 40-something consultants? Let’s get out of the way or at least get behind and matchmake some good conversations.
