About Schoolnet Advisory Board

What?
The SchoolNet Youth Advisory Board (SYAB) will research and discuss 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.

Why?
Canada's young people are now highly exposed to ICT. Internet access has been made available to all public schools and libraries, thousands of community centres and can be found in 30% of Canadian households (StatCan). There is an 83% Internet penetration among Canadian youth (ACNeilson). With this degree of exposure, it is critical that Canadian youth have easy access to safe online learning communities.

So, Canada's SchoolNet is now looking to create more online resources and services for Canadian youth. And we believe that to develop successful new services, we need to consult Canadian youth on what their needs are before we do anything else. The SYAB will provide Canadian youth with the opportunity to guide these new online initiatives.

How?
In spring 2001, the SYAB will participate in online discussion forums and workshops, lead by an education consultant, to help them frame the issues and formulate recommendations. SYAB members, along with chaperones, will then visit Ottawa for two days this spring. On Saturday May 12, 2001, members will participate in a face-to-face workshop. Here they will get a chance to get to know each other better, bring together their ideas as a group and finalize their recommendations to SchoolNet.
On Sunday, May 13th, 2001, the SYAB will make a presentation of their recommendations, in person and in a live web-cast, to SchoolNet, the SchoolNet National Advisory Board (members are leaders of various educational associations, provincial and territorial Ministries of Education, provincial learning networks, the research community and the volunteer sector), participating youth organizations, select SchoolNet partners and others in the community. Senator Landon Pearson, Honourary Chair of the SYAB will also attend as an honourary guest. This event will be held at the Canada Science and Technology Museum on May 13, 2001, the final day of Canada's IT week.
