Using Technology to Enhance Your 4-H Experience

Between Facebook and Twitter and other social media and websites and blogs and smartphones and more, it can be very challenging to keep up with the latest technology trends. But technology can also be a great tool to support communication and learning between 4-H volunteers and participants. The third session of the 2013-2014 North Central Regional Volunteer e-Forum offers tips for connecting to new technology for 4-H volunteers.

Rod Buchele, Kansas State University; Molly Frendo, Michigan State University; Mark Light, The Ohio State University; and Kari Robideau, University of Minnesota will share some easy ways that technology can help 4-H leaders be better connected with youth participants. It will also briefly explore ideas on integrating technology into 4-H projects to enhance the life skill development and 21st century skills of young people.

Volunteers are invited to tune into this session of the 2013-2014 NCRV e-Forum with local 4-H staff and other adult leaders on Tuesday, Jan.14, 2014. The program can be viewed at at 8:00 p.m Eastern (7:00PM Central, and 6:00PM Mountain). Sessions will be 90 minutes in length. The NCRV e-Forum is a chance to watch presentations live, send questions to the experts and participate in discussions with adult leaders from around the region. Recordings will be housed both on and on the North Central Region Volunteer e-Forum website:
