YouthLearn Seeks Input on Curriculum

The team at YouthLearn has been working for some time to explore the best ways to integrate technology and media into afterschool learning. Last year we launched a new section of the website as part of our work with SEDL and the Mott Foundation that showcased a number of model afterschool programs:

http://www.youthlearn.org/afterschool

Now we're specifically exploring how afterschool programs are using and/or adapting curricula to serve their programmatic needs. We're looking for ways that list members have used and/or adapted the curricular materials on the YouthLearn website:

http://www.youthlearn.org/learning/activities

Have you ever incorporated YouthLearn lesson plans into your work (i.e. the Soil Around Us project)? Have you had to adapt them, and, if so, how?

We're also more broadly interested in examples of curricula you've found valuable to address a number of key programmatic elements, such as:

- Fun & Games
- Online Learning
- Communication Skills
- Self-Expression
- Problem Solving
- Careers

If you know of any examples of curricula in these areas, especially if you've had success developing or adapting materials for your own needs, please let us know by sending an email to tstreit@edc.org with your thoughts and recommendations. We'll be sharing what we gleam from all of you as we further develop our training materials and the website.
