BUILDING THE TRANSITIONHANDBOOK THE TRANSITION SO FAR 
Thursday, June 21, 2012
The purpose of this presentation is to synthesise some of the key themes that have emerged across the (hugely diverse) missionreports, and open up a space to consider where Edgeryders think policies are working and where they could work better.The aim of this session as a whole is to generate some discussion on this topic – drawing on the expertise of the whole research team– which formally may be those writing for the handbook but really includes everyone who has participated in Edgeryders throughthe platform.
 
The Edgeryders Platform: A Many-Layered Thing
Thursday, June 21, 2012
First, I’d like to provide some context on the analysis that has been conducted so far – because it is likely that participants will have haquite a different view of the platform and its content compared to the way we as researchers have been looking at it. It is alsointeresting to consider how the innovative Edgeryders methodology has been truly fully appropriated by its participants. My intentionhere is to just illustrate briefly how rich the data is that results. To do this, I want to use the metaphor of a cake.The foundational layer of the cake is how the project has been conceptualised by the project team - as a social game, peer-to-peerlearning environment and a shared space capable of facilitating more sharing. So it is already intended to be several things as well asresearch tool.The second layer, the campaigns and missions, have largely been structured by the Edgeryders core team in collaboration with key contributors through the platform. However, they have been taken in many directions by participants in their mission reports. Thecomments on these reports constitute the third layer of the cake.From here, relationships between participants have developed through and outside the platform, some of which go on to feed back intthe project in the form of more comments and, sometimes, new mission reports. This adds to the dynamism of the picture thatemerges of the nature of Edgeryders experiences and responses to their present challenges. At the same time, the development of thiscumulative illustration of participants experiences offers an insight into their socio-economic specificities – the real-life settings in which Edgeryders’ lives are played out.Finally, there is the overall meta-level of the project as a whole – what does the project in its entirety suggest about how Europe’s younpeople are transitioning into a meaningful and active life?The aim of our analysis has been to focus on the higher layers in order to draw together common threads that could usefully informpolicy development.
