"Hi Jon and Tim
Thanks for replying and yes I will post what I find, although I feel a bit behind the times at the moment, I had a bit of a lull over the past 6 months with trying to study and work full time, so just trying to pick up the pieces…"
Also fine with me. And would love to see summary of the dissertation findings also. Are you able to join us for the conference in Wales next week? I'm hoping we can get a discussion together there about what research has already…"
Wow! I didn't realise you could customise these pages... looks good.
Would be great to hear about any ways you've been using social media / exploring new technologies for youth work in Littlehampton (and beyond).
In the research I've been doing for the Youth Work and Social Networking project we certainly found that church based projects were often far more active using social networks than their statutory sector colleagues... does you experience match up with that?
If you can form some sort of question or challenge around how you might want to use social networks in your work and drop it into the forum then I'll try to marshal some new network members to come over and start exploring possibilities :)
Exploring how social networks can be a tool for Youth Work is definitely much needed...
Hi Jon, Im good, hows George williams? I had my graduation on Friday at the Canterbury cathedral which was nice. Work is good and Im trying to get the use of media and sns stuff more integrated into our work. Things are going well, also because I had fun enjoying the snow yesterday, back to work tonight though. I hope you are doing well, it looks as though you are by your movie.

Thanks for that; your youthworktoolbox website looks useful, particularly the podcasts.
We're looking at going with Mailchimp as it's very user-friendly and very much integrated with social media which is a major plus.
I currently use Awebber for my email campaigns.
It's a paid service, but after my research, it seemed to be the best option for me.
I also have a mail chimp account, but I have never used it.
Awebber was not too difficult to set…"

BackgroundOne of the challenges of assessment processes with young people is how to secure their involvement and active participation. Only too often assessment can become something that is ‘done’ to young people (or a form that needs to be filled in), rather than a dynamic process that puts them at the centre, something theyare involved with and have some ownership over. The assessment tools called ‘CAF Cards’ and ‘Road Sign Cards’ have been developed with young people to work with the…See More
