UK - Children and young people's views on web 2.0 technologies

Research report by Peter Rudd and Matthew Walker. The overarching aim of this work was to gather young people’s views about web 2.0 technologies. The project was interested in young people’s personal use of social media, but also in how they might use these tools in a community or local authority (LA) context, for example, to communicate with other young people, organise meetings and events, express their views, or take part in a youth cabinet or similar representative group. The report provides useful information for LA personnel considering using web 2.0 tools and policy personnel considering future forms of communication within children’s services fields.
