> I've tried several times in the past few weeks to post messages to the
list, but my messages don't seem to be making it past the server. At any
rate, like Marie, I am also preparing a session on Scouting the Internet
our council's ACES (Adult Continuing Education in Scouting) program
(formerly PowWow, altered to include Boy Scout Leaders, as well as Cub
Leaders). If you have any information, ideas, etc. that may help me, I'd
appreciate hearing from you.
To Jim and anyone else who may be interested,
The best place to start is at Gary Hendra's MacScouter site with
"Scouting on the Internet" for a primer:
Also, there is an excellant article(s) in the Feb. issue of "Scouter"
Magazine discussing this very issue, an all around great "resource" to
"know & use", available thru:
As far as web resources goes, they're almost limitless. Start with the
Scouter's Compass, U.S. Scouting Service Project, the MacScouter,
Scouting Online, the Virtual Campsite, & Troop 24's sites:
For some more program specific information try Baloo's Bugle, PowWow
Online, Pack 114's Reference Library, the Virtual Cub Leader's Handbook,
Netwoods Scout Hut, & Merit Badge Research Center:
And to round out this list with an international flair, try Scouts UK,
Scouts CA, the Scouting Jumpstation (UK), the World Scout Movement, and
some misc. international Scout links:
This really just scratches the SURFace. Get the Feb. issue of Scouter
Magazine and your could write your whole syllabus just from that. Good
Luck., and send me a copy when you're done. E-mial me privately for the
address if you can't send electronically, thanks.
