Effec­tive edu­ca­tional pro­gram

Effec­tive edu­ca­tional pro­gram with the exam­ple of our Youth Time Sum­mer School 2014 participant

Tomas Zahrad­nik has par­tic­i­pated in the Youth Time Sum­mer School. He can be right­fully con­sid­ered as a local celebrity in his home­town. The Czech news­pa­pers had pub­lished some arti­cles about this young man, nam­ing him a true asset of the edu­ca­tional sys­tem reforms. Tomas has recently grad­u­ated from high school where he, unlike many of us, never yawned life away and stud­ied only the sub­jects that really appealed to him. Zahrad­nik is one of the founders of a web por­tal for high school stu­dents called prostre​dosko​laky​.cz, and, per­haps, he is a good role model for all Euro­pean youth.

Infor­mal Edu­ca­tion

Infor­mal edu­ca­tion is just an idea pro­moted by Youth Time in this edi­tion but is already under­way in some of the projects envi­sioned by our active YT mem­bers. From our Youth Map por­tal where young par­tic­i­pants have been stu­diously express­ing and engag­ing their ideas online, we have selected some projects related to infor­mal edu­ca­tion to share with our read­ers this month.

Youth Time on the The Game Devel­op­ers Con­fer­ence™ Europe

In August 1113, 2014 the Youth Time Mag­a­zine rep­re­sen­ta­tives took part in the largest professionals-​only game indus­try event in Europe.

The GDC Europe was held in Cologne (Ger­many) in con­junc­tion with gamescom, the lead­ing Euro­pean con­sumer show, cre­at­ing a full week of activ­ity and oppor­tu­nity for the games industry.

This con­flu­ence of indus­try pro­fes­sion­als allows GDC Europe to address the devel­op­ment com­mu­nity at a cen­tral loca­tion in the heart of Europe, and com­mand the crit­i­cal mass of the Euro­pean games sec­tor. GDC Europe is the essen­tial plat­form for learn­ing, inspi­ra­tion and net­work­ing for the cre­ators of com­puter, con­sole, hand­held, mobile, social, and online games in Europe.

GDC Europe is hosted by UBM Tech Game Net­work. UBM Tech Game Net­work offers market-​defining con­tent, and dri­ves com­mu­nity through its award-​winning lineup of print, online, and event prod­ucts and ser­vices, includ­ing Gama​su​tra​.com.

The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Con­fer­ence in Prague

On Thurs­day 7th August, Youth Time joined in the Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Con­fer­ence in Prague to see for our­selves what the great minds of renowned schol­ars, edu­ca­tors and pHd stu­dents had to say on the press­ing mat­ters of education.

The sci­en­tific top­ics were as wide and var­ied as the enthu­si­as­tic par­tic­i­pants and included such inter­est­ing spheres as emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies, dis­tance edu­ca­tion, bar­ri­ers to learn­ing, indige­nous issues, psy­chol­ogy and Eras­mus exchange programs.

Talks on wire­less appli­ca­tions, vir­tual learn­ing envi­ron­ments and inter­net tech­nolo­gies sup­plied the invig­o­rat­ing pro­ceed­ings with an extremely rel­e­vant touch of moder­nity as the speak­ers moved beyond the often redun­dant tech­niques of years gone by.

The par­tic­i­pants them­selves came from a sur­pris­ingly large back­ground with a wel­com­ing diver­sity across age, nation­al­ity, spe­cial­iza­tion which lended itself to the mul­ti­cul­tural, dynamic and engag­ing atmos­phere of the proceedings.

Youth Time Mag­a­zine was extremely grate­ful to the orga­niz­ers and for the oppor­tu­nity to take part in this cap­ti­vat­ing event which is highly rel­e­vant to our upcom­ing new issue on infor­mal and non-​formal edu­ca­tion avail­able next month!
