On behalf of the North Carolina Council of Churches (NCCC) and North Carolina State University, please join us for a half-day gathering of Triangle-area campus ministers, which we believe will be helpful to you and the young people with whom you work.
Over the last year, the NCCC has been working in conjunction with education professors and doctoral students at NC State to explore how this generation of youth and college students uses emerging technologies. We’ve also explored the nature of their volunteerism and social justice work. The result, which we are calling the Collaborative Knowledge Construction Summit, focuses on ways to engage young adults in social justice initiatives through technology. We hope you’ll join us for the Summit so that we can:
-Share with you what we’ve learned from our research
-Provide opportunities to hear first-hand from young adults about their experiences with social justice
-Demonstrate ways to use emerging technologies in your work with youth and students
-Collectively generate creative ideas and action plans for using technology to engage young adults in service work and social justice
The Summit is free and will take place at NC State’s Friday Institute (http://www.fi.ncsu.edu/about/directions.html) on Tuesday, November 9, 2010.
We will begin at 8:30 am with coffee and light refreshments and end at 1:00 pm. Lunch will be served. Please RSVP by October 26 to Alyssa Bryant (firstname.lastname@example.org).
