-Scouts will meet in the basement at the Strathcona County Building in Room L1, to have a planning meeting for Jamboree on the Internet.

This week Scouts will be learning about Internet safety and preparing for the Jamboree on the Internet JOTI – October 20, 2018.

Scouts are asked to bring a laptop and or tablet so that we can make sure that it can connect to the wireless, and we can practice for JOTI.

Other things that may come in handy:

    • A computer that has the PC version of Minecraft installed youth will have the opportunity to play minecraft  with other scouts from around the world (this is not mandatory).
    • Headphones with a mic.
    • A external keyboard if the youth are using a tablet

October 20, 2018 – Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI) Fun Day

Welcome to JOTI 2018 – Saturday October 20th 2018!!!

The scouts will once again be meeting in the Basement of the County hall in Room L1, to participate in the 2018 Jamboree on the Internet.

We we will be broadcasting the Jamboree radio and communicating with scouts around the world. Scouts will have developed goals for how they want participate and will be encouraged to try many different digital communication methods, Teamspeak, Web IRC, and minecraft to name a few.

Scouts will need:

    •  A laptop or tablet, Mac, Windows, ChromeBook, or Linux will all work (We will arrange to have a few extra computers on hand as well)
    • An open mind
    • A can do attitude
    • Their uniform and necker

We will be providing healthy snacks,as well as, taking a break to go for a short hike to pick up pizza for lunch.

The format will be very open and scouts can either participate for the whole day or stay for an hour or two. This is the first time we take part in the Jamboree. I think it will be a very fun day for everyone.

***Please let Scouter Keith know if there are any dietary restrictions we should take into account when gathering snacks.***
