Michael Furdyk

Inspired by Michael’s TakingITGlobal.org? If you see your school being interested in joining this global online community for young people, come along to this workshop and discuss the practicalities of how schools, teachers and students can become involved in TakingITGlobal's programs.

Michael Furdyk is the Co-founder and Director of Technology for TakingITGlobal.org, a global online community for young people, engaging hundreds of thousands of youth in over 200 countries and territories. A pioneer of the Net Generation, he has turned his interest in technology into a series of successful online companies, co-founding MyDesktop.com and BuyBuddy.com (which raised $4.5-million of venture capital).

As one of Teen People's past "20 teens that will change the world", Michael has shared his opinions about Youth Engagement and experiences as a member of the Net Generation by speaking at dozens of events, including the World Congress on IT, the US Government's National Youth Summit, and Microsoft's Anytime. With the ability to speak accessibly about new technologies to average people, he underscores the importance of continued investment in new technology and new skill.
