Harvard Family Research Project's Evaluation Exchange Features YouthLearn

The latest version of the Harvard Family Research Project's Evaluation Exchange is all about Technology and Evaluation and features an article on YouthLearn by Project Director Tony Streit. The article address the role of technology in youth programming and the importance of professional development that supports both student centered, experiential learning and technology skill building. Other interesting artices in this issue include an exploration of how technology supports "empowerment evaluation," a look at online tools helping support the National Youth Participation Study, and an article on the work of leading youth media organization Educational Video Center (EVC).

Below is HRFP's annoucement:

"The Fall 2004 issue of Harvard Family Research Project's "The Evaluation Exchange" periodical is now available. The new issue explores the contribution of technology to evaluation practice, with articles centering on four key areas in which evaluators are using technology: data collection and analysis, collaboration, knowledge mobilization, and evaluation capacity building. Rounding out the issue is a special feature on the role technology plays in fostering youth civic engagement and in evaluating programs for youth."

"This issue also features an additional online-only version of New & Noteworthy, the annotated list of organizations, reports, initiatives, and other resources related to the issue's topic that appears at the end of every issue. The online-only version includes all citations listed in the print version of New & Noteworthy along with several others which we were unable to include due to space constraints. The issue is available on our website at: To subscribe to "The Evaluation Exchange," you can you can visit the HFRP website at:"
