Event Details

 

I look forward to connecting Wed. with those who can still join our informal call at 12 Noon CENTRAL.

Be ready to discuss. You should have read the report and at least skimmed Steven Clift's inclusion summary.


The format is simple:

1. Call in - +1-651-300-5485  - PIN 17435

2. Go to this Uberconference web page:
https://www.uberconference.com/u/e-democracy

If you create an Uberconference account you can link to your LinkedIN, Twitter, etc. accounts. When you talk the web page will show who is taking.

3. Load up this Google Doc for collaborative note taking: http://bitly.com/digicivic


The agenda for the 1 hour and 15 minute conversation.

1. Welcome - Steven Clift

2. Introductory Questions - Who you are and what is your "big" question about the report? We will go around the horn and all say hello.

3. Discussion questions:

 

  • What do the Civic Engagement in the Digital Age report numbers mean to you? Share your analysis.
     
  • Understanding the gaps - Where do the numbers suggest there are opportunities for civic tech and online engagement to help close the civic engagement divide both online and offline?

 

  • What research questions do we want investigated next? Who out there is already doing that research?

 

4. Next steps, closing



Please note this is our first chance to experiment with Uberconference. We will be recording the session too.

This really is meant to be a discussion session and NOT an overview of the report itself.

Also, I want to thank folks those who have been helping crunch the data in important ways. That work will likely be shared at a later date.

Talk to you on Wednesday!

New Voices - Civic Engagement in Digital Age Meeting
Tentatively - Oct 16, 2013 - 1 p.m. Eastern


Virtual Version - Hosted by E-Democracy.org


Who:  Civic technology leaders, digital inclusion advocates, government representatives, organizations representing diverse constituencies, civic engagement experts


What: Explore the results and analysis in the Civic Engagement in the Digital Age report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project


  • What do the Civic Engagement in the Digital Age report numbers tell us? What further questions do we have?

  • Understanding the gaps - where do the numbers suggest there are opportunities for civic tech and online engagement to help close the civic engagement divide both online and offline?

  • Who is already doing what to raise new voices online? Possible action steps?

Virtual attendees are expected to have reviewed the report in advance and skimmed this summary. The meeting will allow us to take a preliminary deep dive and to discuss in a private setting opportunities for the civic tech/open gov/online civic engagement community to respond.


Amy Gahran’s nutshell summary:


To engage with civic issues or their government, people have always needed to get information and talk to people. Access to the internet, social media, and mobile communications has changed civic engagement somewhat -- but it's not really helping to bring in new voices or amplify marginalized ones. Well-educated, well-off people still tend to do it more, according to a new Pew report.


When:  1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Eastern, Wed, Sep 18, 2013


Where: ONLINE - Tech TBD


Hosted By:  Steven Clift, Executive Director, E-Democracy.org (Based in MN)
