Abstract

Technology has been making it to classrooms for over four decades, deeply affecting education. Nowadays, with the advent of Web 2.0, the Internet has become truly interactive, providing a realistic, visually compelling, and motivating environment for developing the life skills and knowledge needed for today’s globalized, hi-tech environment. The current study explores the development of youth’s leadership and social skills, focusing on the application of an innovative Social-Virtual curriculum, where in-classroom and internet-based activities are integrated in a non-formal educational setting. Specifically, it aims to examine the development of active and responsible local and global future leaders that are aware of their social responsibility and duties. The Mediterranean Youth Technology Club (MYTecC) provides the setting to examine the above.
