The Technology Link and Roundtable
Click here to print a copy of this article.
In the Winter 2014 newsletter, we featured a district
using YouTube videos as a roundtable distribution method
for Scouters who weren’t able to attend. In the Spring 2014
newsletter, we featured a district that does not have access to
high-speed Internet service, so it uses technology to create an
offline movie approach to roundtable presentations.
Clearly, in some parts of this country there is a lot of
technology linkage access, and in other places there is very
little. The challenge is finding ways to use technology as a
productive roundtable distribution vehicle regardless of which
situation you find yourself in. Getting important information to
all adult unit leaders is still an important part of our goal.
Good roundtables promote great Scouting. Our youth
deserve the best! So let’s provide good roundtables to as many
as we can in as many different ways as we can.
In the next newsletter, we will feature an article about the
BSA’s social media guidelines to make sure that whatever we
do is ethical and legal.
Share your roundtable delivery experiences (and tips) by

love to spotlight your story!
