Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Many young people's lives are significantly affected by digital spaces and places and the technologies which make interaction in these spaces and places, possible. Based on current doctoral research, this paper proposes a model representing the scope for Ôdigital youth workÕ, whilst posing questions about the efficacy of digital spaces and places as locales to enable young people to participate in the wider decision-making processes that directly involve them.
