I received a call earlier this morning from Katie Bacon, who informed me that there was a section in today’s Guardian “People Power” which contained an article about using social networking platforms for Youth Participation and Katie was of course mentioned (Well done Katie). However the whole pull out contained a wide range of interesting articles about Social Media, Engagement, Participation and Social Cohesion.
I have since searched online but have not yet found the online versions. But if you are interested in this area of work and you can get a copy of today’s Guardian or even just get to read the People Power section I’d recommend it.

Thanks Paul, we do face similar challenges here and only through experiences are we able to challenge effectively.
I added this NSW bit to my filters (censorware) post as *at least* you can challenge their blocking of social networks. If individual schools do it here and if it’s built into the bought software that makes successful youth participation that much harder.
