One of the easiest ways to sustain the energy behind a website is to show young people how to update the site on their own. We can let some of our young people use old cameraphones to take and upload images to Flickr where they will embed to our website.
We're just getting started with a website that young people at Busy Bees can keep updated with photos they take and audio clips they make during our afternoon sessions in Clonmel, County Tipperary, Ireland.
A big thanks to Bernie Goldbach and the #ictedu crew for encouraging us to get started with Typepad.
We've made baby steps on Audioboo on Twitter and on Flickr. The big steps come after we teach digital natives between the ages of five and 14 how to update the site with really cool content of their own.
Please check back and let us know how we're doing!
