Online tools

There is an ever-increasing number of online services and platforms that claim to offer novel modes of communication. Looking beyond the high profile, commonly used social media services, there are lots of smaller platforms that may be useful for research.

The slideshows on this page cover a selection of tools, with examples and pros and cons for each tool. They have been produced by practitioners from Sunderland in the UK who have been exploring online tools in youth work. They have used such tools to engage with young people, explore issues, record views, and creatively communicate with young people about the changes they want to see.

Quotes
