Newsletter 30th November 2015

It’s (almost) OVER!

I would just like to say what a fantastic amazing group of people I have worked with on this project. Without a doubt I have learned the most!

Thank you to Jane at Corrugated Iron who gave me access to her wealth of experience, the mentors past and present who helped and made the project what is was and all the parents who dropped kids off and provided reassurance and kind words to keep us focused on the participants.

I will be sending out a redacted report to everyone that tells of the the experience and why we did things in a certain way. It was very challenging (and ultimately rewarding) to run classes with disparate interests and abilities. I will always remember the “House of Tech” : showing ingenuity, creativity , patience and perseverance, thanks for making it a huge success. The best part of the program is that we became a group of like minded people who are interested in making not just consuming technology.

But………

Continuity of the Program
We are looking to keep some form of youth technology classes running in 2016

At this stage we will be starting in Term 1 along with the rest of the Corrugated Iron program. There will be a fee involved as the University of South Australia funding has finished.

It will be:

  • fun , engaging and based around technology and the internet
  • diverse and adaptable: providing young learners with relevant information that they need to do what interests them
  • build social capacity and collaboration

If you know of people, funding or ideas to continue youth tech engagement drop a line to Jane is putting the program together for next year : jane@corrugatediron.org.au

We are trying to get a day together during the school holidays and will keep you informed (but also regularly check the corrugated Iron youth Arts website for details of youth workshops and events across Darwin and the NT!)

We will be popping up much of the material on the website as well as speeches and interviews, have a look over the next month!
