3rd Round Table on Information and Communication Technology in Scouting and Guiding

6 February 2014 @ 18:00 - 9 February 2014 @ 12:00

| €150

The Round Table on ICT for Scouts and Guides is an initiative of the ICT Network in Scouts and Guides of the European Region of WOSM and Europe Region WAGGGS. The local organisation is done by Suomen Partiolaiset – Finlands Scouter ry, Finland. The aim of the ICT Round Table for Scouts and Guides is to value the importance and the place of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the day-to-day activities of National Scouts Organisations, Associations and Member Organisations of WOSM and WAGGGS. We want to offer a space for scouts and guides involved in ICT where they can exchange ideas and work together on common projects or initiatives. The third round table offers a unique opportunity to exchange of experiences, information, best practices and success stories among the participating organisations / associations. As an objective we would like to try to find answers to these questions:

  • How can we use technology to help involve young people in the development and design of youth programme?
  • How can we revolutionize the management and business practices of scouting and guiding with the aid of information and communication technology?
  • How can we engage young people in the IT organisation of NSOs/NSAs/MOs. in such a way that they can contribute, take responsibility and be a part of IT development and delivery?
  • How can we empower young people through the use of technology and social media?
  • How can we employ statistical analysis of membership data, geography and demographics to discover and take advantage of risks and strong points of NSOs/NSAs/MOs?
  • How can we develop new methods and techniques to increase the effectiveness of the implementation of the scout method?
  • How can we adopt communication tools and channels in such a way that we create more opportunities to network amongst NSOs, NSAs and MOs?
  • How can we establish a real and active European Network on ICT for Scouts and Guides that allows us the share experiences and work on common initiatives on a permanent basis?

Priority areas

In order to find answers to the questions above, we want to invite all scouts and guides that have a special interest in, a good experience with, or a deeper knowledge of one or more of these key topics: – Statistical analysis and business intelligence based on membership and other (open) data E.g. combining data about population density and your membership data to create a map of scouts/guides related to population density – E-learning systems, blended learning and new pedagogical approaches E.g. a website where scouts/guides can gain different skills from in organised and structural way – Event management systems, centralized event calendars and online events E.g. one online event calendar for the rover scouts of a region – Enabling youth participation using IT systems and communication platforms for social media E.g. an online channel that allows youth members to exchange programme experiences and suggest programme ideas
