What is JOTA – JOTI ? How to Participate in it ?

Many of my Dear Scout brothers and sisters ask me about JOTA- JOTI events.  

Welcome to All About Scouting,

This year 2020, the events of JOTA- JOTI will be held simultaneously from 16 Oct-18Oct. Regarding this, here I am providing all information about the events of JOTA-JOTI.

What is Jamboree?

Jamboree is a large gathering of people, especially the Scouts and Guides. Jamboree is the Jumbo rally of Scouts and Guides, where members of the Scout Movement come together. They exchange ideas, thoughts,things relating to Scouting, cultural programmes etc.

Why JOTA or JOTI?

The Scout and Guide movement has a huge number of members worldwide. Though World Jamboree is organised at International level after a particular interval, physical gathering of Scouts and Guides is not possible every year with a huge number of participants.

The use of technology makes it simple. With the help of JOTA- JOTI every Scout or Guide can participate in Jamboree from the comfort of home. 

What is JOTA? 

JOTA stands for Jamboree On The Air.

To participate in this event of JOTA, a HAM radio set is required. If you are not having it, you can approach the HAM operator near to you.

If you don’t have any option mentioned above, don’t worry another option is waiting for you. Yes, that is JOTI.

What is JOTI?

JOTI stands for Jamboree On The Internet.

JOTA provides only audio communication. In JOTI, you can participate  with the help of Internet enabled devices like smartphones, computers or laptops. You can interact with other Scouts from all over the globe with help of audio-visual technology.
