civic learning online

I'm heading out to Seattle this evening for a conference at the University of Washington's Center for Communication and Civic Engagement. The topic is how youth can use the new digital media to learn active citizenship. The Center has a separate site on that topic and some practical work underway that I'll learn more about when I arrive out there. Several of the other participants are bloggers--at least Allison Fine, Howard Rheingold, and Eszter Hargittai. There is also a good project blog, Engaged Youth, to which we'll all be contributing.
