Although this is just a minor update – mainly just tidying up some of the program language, some typos, and updating the branding – we thought it was a good opportunity to remind you of the resource called Programming Overview, now updated on the Program Resources website.
All Scout programs should be adventurous, fun, challenging and inclusive for all Scouts involved. By following the programming model for each age section, young people are able to create a Scout program that is engaging and suitable for all members of the Unit or Patrol. Some Scouts may need support to contribute their ideas, and to deliver their ideas in the program.
This resource especially encourages you to ensure the Scout Method is prominent in your programs. The Scout Method is what ensures Scouting embraces non-formal education and learning, in order to achieve the Purpose and Mission of Scouting.
The three most recent Scouts | Terrain development updates are now available for download. These were also distributed directly through branch teams and shared on the Scouts Australia Scouts | Terrain User Community Facebook group.
These include the most recent update from Sunday (22 August).
Video recordings of the webinars developed for our early adopters are now available in the dedicated new Scouts | Terrain page.
It is important to note that from feedback and what continues to be developed, Scouts | Terrain has already evolved and will continue to evolve from what can be seen in the videos. This means that the final product will be even better than what you see here!
Another change is the name. You might see “Traverse” on some screens. This was a possible name but it couldn’t be used in the end.
We have now published each of the “Sprint Updates” for the new digital system coming online in July. The system has been under development since the end of 2019 and development has comprised of a series of “sprints” to create each of the different areas of functionality. You can read about each Sprint and the work that has been achieved surrounding each Sprint in the Sprint Updates. There are currently 8 Sprints reported on, with 10 planned in total.
