So, here we are in Leeds (Hinsley Hall) for a weekend of training with Stewart Cutler (the CYDO for the Synod of Scotland)
Stewart is something of a techie and this morning’s session was all about the relevance, or otherwise, of the internet to our roles. Needless to say, every now and again the wireless signal dropped and we lost all connection to the web, most of the time it was a slow connection, but we all got there.
Stewart talked about Tim Davies and his 5 reasons for using the internet to develop your youth work. I failed to take notes, but hopefully Stewart will post something!
For those who are not as technically competent as others the session was quite challenging. but it was clear that the internet (and its social networking applications) can be a useful tool in our support of young people, and those who work with them.
so, a question … what is your favourite resource site for working with young people?
