01 September 2008

In January 2008, Futurelab put out a national call for ideas around ‘supporting and showcasing informal learning’. Over 110 entries were received, with ShoutBox being one of only three to be short-listed for further exploration. Over a three-month period, desk research, expert interviews and a small study were conducted, resulting in findings and recommendations for the use of such tools to support and showcase young people's informal learning.
