About the 

 web site

Site Summary

The Shineweek website is a social networking site built along the lines of YouTube allowing children, teachers and creative organisations to upload content showcasing their talents. Users will be able to register and subsequent to verification upload video, photos, audio and written content and details of 

 related events.

The website has a detailed verification system – each user associates himself/herself with a school from the Dcsf database
which is integrated into the website. Once a user is registered they can request verification via phone, fax or email.

Tagging, voting and rating
The website will also allow users to vote for, rate and tag content. As well as tagging of content using pre-defined fields, free tagging will be enabled to allow users to suggest and add new tags. This will enable users to generate ideas for what “talent” really is.

About Shine and Shineweek
Shine is a UK government initiative (organised by the Department for Children, Schools and Families formerly the Department for Education) aimed at showcasing the talent of all children in schools nationwide. It is jointly organised by Creative Partnerships, the Arts Council, the Talent and Enterprise Taskforce and the Department for Children, Schools and Families.

From the Shine web site
We, the new youth culture trust with the DCSF, are inviting schools up and down the country to join this festival. We know there are many exciting ends of year events already planned in schools. SHINE offers an opportunity to bring them together in the festival week and join a national campaign to celebrate the talent in everyone.

SHINE will create a real buzz with a strong media presence, the endorsement and support of the Prime Minister and other senior government ministers and well-known faces in the arts and the creative industries.
