Netstorms is an association of informal educators with ICT and digital media skills. The company, Netstorms Limited, was set up to offer:
We develop ICT (Information Communication Technology) related courses, learning resources and learning support networks and offer these in partnership with local learning providers and community groups.
Since 2010 Netstorms has worked with Newham’s Summer School programme to offer courses to young people in the London Borough of Newham. During 2013 -14 we aim to extend our services, beyond Newham, to agencies based across London.
In addition to providing specific courses we are able to help agencies develop online learning communities with their clients. Newham Young People Online (NYPO) is an example of such a community that offers online platforms for discussion (the NYPO Forum), information about opportunities (the NYPO Facebook Page) and archives of young people’s work (the NYPO Wiki pages).
We also offer ICT support services to community groups. These services include website design and management and the development of promotional material and strategies.
