Hello dear listeners,
In this episode we talked to Laimonas Ragauskas, a Lithuanian trainer and consultant in the field of Education, who has been involved in innovative online projects like Cities of Learning, Trainers Appraisal and Badgecraft.
We are living a particular time with the COVID-19 pandemic and all the lockdowns around the world, so it made sense to talk about the digital acceleration that all of us had to undertake, and the tools that Laimonas is involved are very attuned to the current situation we’re in.
We talked about possible solutions using what we know and what we can do, because, let’s face it, we have a lot of tools right now, and things aren’t going back to the previous “normal” anytime soon, so we focused on solutions and future scenarios. On what we can do.
This time is a very good opportunity to try new tools, experiment and trust that progress will be made regarding alternative – probably blended - ways to learn.
Youth work can have an important role in supporting this new reality, youth workers are where young people are, and online is one of those places. A long conversation that we enjoyed very much, pointing to hope and possibilities amongst the challenging times we are facing and that we will face in the near future.
Stay home and talk youth work with us!
