Young Government Employees and Technology


After a 2-week hiatus (vacation and conference), I'm glad to be back on the blogosphere.

If you are visiting this site for the first time after attending my presentation at the ASTD International Conference: WELCOME! I hope that this website serves as a valuable resource to extend our learning and interaction beyond the one-time event.

Today's story comes from Federal Computer Week:

Young people and technology at the Government Leadership Summit

An excerpt:

"Although we talked a bit about collaboration tools and about blogs, most of the energy, including from the audience, was around social-networking sites such as Facebook. We talked mostly about how the participants themselves used technology, a little about how their agencies did so.

I give the exact ages of the participants because one of the most interesting things to come out of the panel is that there are big differences among different micro age-groups of young people (although to older folks they may seem like an undifferentiated mass). When you think about this, it should hardly be surprising, given how fast technologies are changing."
