Computer Clubhouse Conference

Welcome to Los Angeles, and to the 2011 annual Conference of the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network! This is what was on the hotel sign as I walked into famous Millennium Biltmore Hotel lobby, on Sunday April 10, 2011. The theme of this year’s Conference is Reaching New Heights, Deepening the Impact. This conference provides a unique opportunity for our very global Clubhouse community to come together in person, share ideas and experiences, plan for the future and build a stronger community.

The goal was exploring the ways in which the Clubhouse Network can elevate and innovate best practices for a deeper, more sustainable impact on youth. We learned how cutting-edge projects and experiences expand the horizons of Clubhouse youth, provide youth with leadership opportunities, support young people in gaining new knowledge and skills.

One of the highlights of the conference sessions was on Thursday when I attended the Video Production 101 workshop at the Expo Center Computer Clubhouse. We learned the basics of scripting, storyboarding, shooting and editing videos in the Clubhouse. Through the creation of a Public Service Announcement, Clubhouse staff will gain the knowledge and experience needed for producing a professional-level video that includes Clubhouse Member of all ages and abilities.
