Although Scouting is all about adventure, outgoing and learning by doing in the nature as large and modern organizations could be away from current technology. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a vital part for each NSO/NSA/MO and practically is a strategic tool for almost all aspects in Scouting such as for example operations, marketing and training.
Scouts & Guides I/O is all about how you can bring your Organization closer to tools and good practices of using technology to improve. You don’t need to be 100% geek to take part. For example, if you like social media, this event can give you ideas on how you can build a successful strategy. On the other hand, if you are a programmer then you can definitely take some ideas back on you to improve your membership management system. Preparing a national jamboree? Some ideas on the table can help you with participants’ interaction and tech availability throughout your camp site. And many other ideas on apps, APIs, KPIs, project management systems, communication tools, visualization techniques and many many more!
Scouts & Guides I/O 2017 will be held in the UK and you will find all information available from the event’s website at http://scoutsguides.io. Event is held by the European Scouts and Guides ICT Network, an informal network of the Regional WOSM and WAGGGS organizations.
