Inclusion through Distinction

Volume 19.3   2000



The focus of this presentation will be on issues arising from a three-year action research project, exploring young people’s creative uses of digital technology, outside of formal education. The project, based at the University of Central England in Birmingham, and Jubilee Arts in Sandwell, has sought to both engage young people in a creative process, and provide access to digital technology. The research was formulated as a means of exploring the ways in which young people might utilise digital technology creatively, given access, outside of formal education.
