Developing Technological Initiatives for Youth Participation and Local Community Engagement
Burd, Leo
New Directions for Youth Development, n128 p95-104 Win 2010
Recent advances in technology are transforming our lives, but in many cases they are also limiting the way children are exposed to local communities and physical spaces. Technology can help young people actively connect with their neighborhoods, but doing that requires different methods and tools from the ones typically available in schools, homes, and youth centers. This article introduces a theoretical framework describing the technical and nontechnical elements that must be considered in the implementation of technology initiatives for youth participation and local community engagement. The article then describes the application of the framework in two multiyear initiatives. (Contains 2 figures and 7 notes.)
