Hi, all!
Please feel free to forward to interested parties and apologies for  
cross-postings...
-----------------------------

Kids Connect seeks Amsterdam-based instructors for our first pilot  
program this July. We will be teaching digital storytelling, audio/ 
visual performance and virtual collaboration to students aged 13 to  
17, and connecting online with teens in a parallel workshop series in  
New York.

The workshops will run from 18 July through 2 August from  
13:00-17:00,  with a possible additional showcase on 10 August. There  
is also the possibility of continuing to teach in a future series of  
Kids Connect workshops scheduled as after-school programs in the fall  
(October).  The workshops in Amsterdam are being sponsored by Imagine  
IC and Waag Society.

Description:
Kids Connect is a series of summer workshops providing teens the  
opportunity to learn cutting edge skills in media, arts and  
technology. Participants will connect and create with other teens in  
New York and Amsterdam via audio/visual and streaming Internet  
technologies within the online virtual world of Second Life.

New York< >Nieuw Amsterdam will be the theme of the workshops --  
exploring New York’s Dutch heritage, (the city was known as “Nieuw  
Amsterdam” in the 17th century) and the connection between  
historical and contemporary culture in New York and Amsterdam.  
Through digital storytelling and streaming video and audio, a tale of  
two cities will be created.

Kids Connect invites students to turn consumer technologies such as  
computers, video cameras, and MP3 players into creative tools. Guided  
by artists and educators from the fields of improvisation, sound,  
video, and performance, they will learn skills like VJ-ing,  
soundscaping, and digital storytelling. The final project will be a  
networked performance between youth in New York and Amsterdam, also  
occurring in Second Life.
