About Schoolnet Advisory Board
What?
The Government of Canada takes seriously the need for youth participation in areas of public policy, which affects Canada's young population. Since the Canadian Government ratified the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1991, public programs relevant to young people have been gradually elevating the importance placed on youth participation - as can be seen with the marked increase of youth advisory, youth surveying and youth targeted program development.

And so, we established the SchoolNet Youth Advisory Board (SYAB) in March 2001 to advise Canada's SchoolNet on its youth initiatives and inform the Canadian government about how youth are using ICT.
The SYAB researches and discusses such topics as:
§ The future of information and communication technologies (ICT);
§ Skills needed to succeed in the new knowledge society;
§ Tools required to best develop these skills;
§ Accessibility to technology and online content;
§ Content preferences; and
§ Youth engagement through the use of ICT.

How?
The SchoolNet Youth Advisory Board comprises innovative youth, ages 10 to 18, from across Canada. These young people discuss the future of ICT, the effects technology has on learning and what they feel is needed to ensure equal access to technology for all. There is a SYAB conference this week, running from May 22nd-25th in Ottawa, Ontario.
