Reclaiming Digital Futures Toolkit Making Early Impact in the Field
Have you seen how youth across the country are Reclaiming Digital Futures?
On March 26 we launched a new report and online toolkit to share insights, best practices and case examples from leading OST organizations across the country who are doing the work of leveraging digital tools to support community-based youth development. Our eight partner organizations all approach this work in unique ways, tailoring the work to their individual missions and the youth populations that they support. Less than on month since its launch, we are thrilled to see accolades and responses already coming in from the greater community working on youth development to tell us how they are connecting to the toolkit and how excited they are to adapt the resources. To date we’ve heard from:
- The Brooklyn College Community Partnership about plans to use the Reclaiming Digital Futures resources in a developmental psychology class specifically pointed to ‘the space for creativity.’
- The Chicago Learning Exchange and Family Matters who have shared the toolkit as supportive reading for their organization as they look to explore development of digital learning programs.
- CSforALL who has shared the resource internally with the team leading their OST efforts around computer science.
- The Digital Experience team at the Girls Scouts and the manager of youth technology programs at the New York Public Library, both who are including resources from the toolkit in new team trainings.
