Preparation Guide

What do I need to know?

Because you are in a position where you have a good view on the evolution and use of information and communication technology at your scouting or guiding organization, you probably already have the necessary knowledge to participate in Scouts & Guides I/O. However, it never hurts to ask your peers within your scouting and guiding organization for extra advice and information.

What do I need to prepare?

At Scouts & Guides I/O we hope to offer a varied and intensive programme for all participants. The programme requires you to contribute and participate actively in order to make it a success.

This is what you need to prepare at home before coming to the event:

  • Choose a project or achievement you or your organization completed over the last year to present in the Pecha Kucha format. We use this format so that every participant gets an equal opportunity to talk about something. You can find more information on Pecha Kucha here.
  • You will get a chance at presenting the state of information and communication technology applied within your organization during the Poster Market session. The poster example helps you in explaining what information is shared during that session. If you are joining our event together with other members of the same scouting or guiding organization, it is best to create the poster together (in other words, we expect one poster per scouting and guiding organization).
  • You can prepare at most two very short (10 minutes) lessons about a subject of your choice for the peer to peer Teach it programme. Some examples:
    • Ten rules for a successful Facebook post
    • Paper prototyping
    • Principles of agile
