During a Training Course on digital youth participation (Turn Youth Online) that GEYC facilitated in Nea Makri, Greece, we have organized several workshops on digital youth work, also talking about the Youth Workers 2.0 project, presenting some of the conclusions of the Needs Analysis Reports (on low-skilled youth and youth workers) and emphasising the importance of digital skills and competences for young people.
One important topic that we discussed was the digital inclusion of young people, and the participants had to come up with causes of digital exclusion, then brainstorm on solutions that can tackle those issues.
The participants analysed the main technological developments focusing on the interaction of/with young people through social networks. Then, they became promoters of digital youth work and they presented an interesting tool to the other participants in the format of a fair. Furthermore, through the workshops led by the participants, more tools have been presented and experienced.
Thus, through the two approaches, the following tools have been introduced: Google Classroom, Slack, Trello, Badge Wallet, Whatsapp newsletter, Facebook groups, Eurocaching, E-portal, Virtual exchanges, Kahoot, Canva, Powtoon.
