Lessons to Help Youth Thrive Through Informal Learning with Technology

Digital cultures and technology are changing the world, and community-based, youth-serving organizations can play a critical role. To help prepare for this role, Reclaiming Digital Futures, an initiative of Susan Crown Exchange (SCE) and University of California, Irvine, has developed a toolkit that shares effective practices for equitable, youth-oriented digital learning. Developed through a collaborative process between researchers and practitioners, the toolkit is a curated cross-section of resources that relay knowledge and best practices in achieving real success in youth-centered digital learning. The toolkit offers a range of approaches in five strategic areas—pedagogy, skills, technology, community, and capacity—where youth-serving organizations need to focus decision-making to achieve meaningful and impactful success in digital learning. For each strategic area, the toolkit presents guiding perspectives along with “how-to” explanations and case examples of organizational approaches educators can draw on. Integrated into these suggestions are supports for fostering social and emotional learning (SEL) skills.
