Brief bio: tell us a few facts about you & your interest in digital aspects of work with young people
I'm Sangeet Bhullar, founder of WISE KIDS in Wales. WISE KIDS is a non-profit organisation set up in 2002 to promote Internet/New Media/Digital Literacy through our consultancy and training programmes. We work across different sectors: young people, youth professionals, educators, community, public and private sector organisations. and believe strongly that New Media and Web technologies have the potential to help transform education, youth, community and personal development. We also believe that we need to be pro-active in ensuring that young and old alike have the necessary understanding, knowledge and skills to manage their online data, identities and interactions so that they can maximise the potential afforded by these new technologies.

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
