YOUTHLEARN is an electronic mailing list sponsored by the Morino Institute ( YOUTHLEARN focuses on issues related to working with youth and technology, specifically in out-of-school settings. This list encourages the exchange of information, teaching techniques, practical tips and provides space for questions for other members online. Practitioners who are directly working with children and educational experts will be particularly interested in the YOUTHLEARN list. As a forum for discussion, YOUTHLEARN intends to:

* Create a space where practitioners can exchange questions and responses to urgent questions

* Provide up-to-date information about learning and technology issues and initiatives

* Facilitate collaboration among community -based organizations working in this field

* Support the creation of an online community for those working with and interested in the use of technology to increase opportunities for youth in out-of-school programs

* Encourage and increase information exchange to build the capacity of community-based organizations

This list grew out of online discussions and exchanges by participants in a face-to-face training program created through the Youth Development Collaborative Pilot (, an initiative of the Morino Institute.
