National Writing Project – Digital Tools for Change Collection
I happened across two very interesting digital resources for teachers, youth leaders and possibly even parents who want to engage their children in their after-school hours. I’ve cut and pasted the blurbs on the sites below.
The National Writing Project (NWP) has created a fabulous resource where teaching ideas, reflections, and stories about writing in our digital, globally interconnected world have been collected and beautifully organized. That resource is a called Digital IS
Here’s another interesting website called the Digital Youth Network
Bridging the world of school, home, and afterschool activities, the Digital Youth Network aims to engage middle school students and give them access and training in the use of new media literacy tools. DYN creates meaningful activities where students develop new media literacy and critical thinking skills while working towards accomplishing their project goals. Topics include a 6th grade record label class, a 7th grade digital story telling class, and an 8th grade product design class.
