Application deadline: 24th of September 2017.
Colleagues and Friends,
We are pleased to invite you to the upcoming conference "ONL-Youth (Are we
lost in online space?)" that will take place in Belgrade, Serbia,
from 2nd-5th of November 2017. It should brighten up the gap that exists
between youth work, non-formal education and online learning and digital tools.
The fact that young people today are “onl(ine)-youth” does not eliminate the
need to take an active attitude towards online space, in what way and what
purpose it is used with (“digitally wisdom)”. Also, in a what way those
who are onl-youth cooperate with those born before widespread use of digital
technology, such as trainers and youth workers, as well as most of those who
direct Youth policy. Therefore, is it possible youth work to be more online and
using online context and keeping values of non-formal education with youth?
The Conference will bring together youth workers, non-formal educators
(trainers), young people, experts for online learning in different fields from
Albania, Croatia, Finland, Kosovo*, Lithuania, Macedonia, Spain and Serbia.
This will be a unique opportunity not only to share and discuss, but also to
try to perceive how the onl-youth culture shapes the youth work and non-formal
education today, and potentials and traps in this aria.
Through discussion groups, small experiential groups, the large
group (plenary), workshops, and panel lectures, we will explore topics
technologies - history and where we are now.
online youth work and youth activism?
interaction and dynamics - how to achieve them?
and dilemmas about online non-formal learning dealing with topics such as:
youth activism, youth participation in decision-making processes, increasing
youth employability, raising awareness of gender equality ...
Online support for
youths who are coming from sensitive groups.
How can we use video
and other games for pedagogical purposes?
Internet traps -
invisible marketing .
Virtual world -
reality and opportunities?
