unified around the complex issue of raising children in a tech-saturated world

gathering stakeholders

4/1/15 network weaving pt.2

The ability to map, understand and weave networks strategically enhances collective impact initiatives, making them more likely to succeed.
According to June Holley, author of the ‘Network Weaver Handbook’, transformational change happens when new networks supersede or replace the old ones.

4/1/15 network weaving pt.1

This meeting marks an important transition for the EPIK Alliance, as we are transitioning from Phase I to Phase II in the collective impact process. The purpose of this meeting was to review what the Alliance did in Phase I, and to talk about next steps as we move into Phase II.

1/28/15 data resource pooling

For collective impact to be successful, dialogue must transition to more focused work around data. Phase 2 will involve more specific work using data to start to scope the issue, map the landscape, make a case for the Alliance’s work, and engage in community outreach.

12/4/14 adult + youth issue maps

"Not about us without us"
Figuring out solutions for children is impossible without their insights and knowledge. Read about how we processed input from both youth and adults to map the positives and negatives of technology.

11/5/14 landscape mapping

Everyone wrote down the WHO, WHAT, and WHY to lay the foundation for preliminary data-gathering and issue analysis in Phase 2. It became clear that there are many resources that are available, but not a lot of knowledge within the community about what is available.

9/30/14 issue clustering

While in the early stages of Collective Impact opinion data is important to gather, and very soon we will focus on gathering hard data. Today, three working groups clustered positives of technology, negatives of technology, and the youth council's input.
