Web Conferences at NCSET

Live Webcast Demonstration of Youthhood.org

On July 12, 13, and 14, 2005, presenters used Web conferencing software to show the power of The Youthhood Web site (http://www.youthhood.org), NCSET’s interactive Web-based curriculum developed to help young adults plan for life after high school. The site includes engaging content, interactive activities, an online magazine, numerous links to reputable Web sites, and a wealth of other opportunities for youth to connect more personally to their learning experiences in and out of school. The site addresses youth directly, and yet it is intended to be used as a curriculum within a classroom, community program, or in any setting where adults are working with youth to set goals and plan for the future. The Youthhood curriculum is interactive, fun, and best of all, free!

View the archive of the July 14 Web conference (1 hour, 10 minutes) (link opens in new window). You will be able to experience exactly what the participants experienced by going to this archive, however you will not be able to submit questions (send your questions regarding the Youthhood Web site to youthhood@umn.edu). Be sure your audio is turned on (you can either use headphones or your computer's speakers) to hear the audio component. You may want to pre-test your computer prior to viewing the archive. See the Participation Requirements below.


Presented by:

Pam Stenhjem, Associate Director, NCSET
Pam directed the overall development and creation of the Youthhood Web site along with her staff Julia Socha, John Smith, Kris Peterson, Ben Anderson, and Patricia Merrill.

Megan Dushin, IT Professional, NCSET
Megan managed the technical end of the development of Youthhood.org with a group of talented Web developers (Shawn Lawler, Joelle Tegwen, Krishna Subramonia Iyer, and others). She is very excited to see so many teachers and their students already registered on the site!


About the Web Conference Technology

We used the Macromedia Breeze (now Adobe Acrobat Connect) product to deliver this Web conference. Breeze allows you to attend a meeting or presentation in real time over your computer (no telephone). However, you must have several things in place prior to this call in order to participate (or view the archive). Click here to learn more about Adobe Acrobat Connect.
