Website Review: TIGWEB (Joni Trammel)

  1. 1. Website ReviewTaking it Globaltigweb.org<br />Joni Trammell<br />Kansas State University<br />
  2. 2. TakingITGlobal<br />Youth-based website with a goal to ‘inspire, inform and involve’ (tigweb.com, 2011).<br />Not an organization which has presence in communities, such as the Peace Corps or Unicef, but a resource for anyone or any group who wants to make a global difference.<br />Site also contains headlines and information on global youth issues, interactive advocacy games, and statistical information on countries.<br />Fun, bright, creative presentation. <br />Inviting to guests, functional display, user friendly.<br />
  3. 3. Nuts and Bolts<br />Website encourages visitors to become a member and create a profile. A necessity in today’s information-sharing society, but only a few that I checked take part in this feature.<br />Having a profile is a phenomenal tool in assembling groups to wage advocacy.<br />Encourages youth-engagement and what a fantastic way to empower them.<br />Indicates how many members originate from the country you are searching and how many of those members are currently online.<br />Extensive action items for individuals, organizations and educators. <br />It’s also translated into several different languages. <br />
  4. 4. Taking it Global…to Africa<br />My region of choice is Africa with an emphasis on youth education. This prompted me to conduct searches on this specific topic. My experience in doing so was quite impressive.<br />First, each time I went to a different page, I was greeted in a different language!<br />Conducting a search for Africa on tigweb.org not only returns information that TakingITGlobal is participating in, but information that other groups are doing as well.<br />TakingITGlobal has also developed their own simple reference system called a TIG Tag. It’s a one word reference to simplify future searching. Magnificent!<br />
