Give Kids a Venue

Have you seen anything amazing from students lately? If not, it’s likely they’ve not been given an appropriate venue. As educators it’s our obligation to create spaces where expression is natural and then open the gates. I had the pleasure of seeing some of our kids shine tonight when they spoke to a group of community leaders. We were there to share our class blog and address issues related to social networking, but it was so much more than that.
The kids were not only well spoken, but they spoke with authority and passion about learning and their digital lives.
Now, the ball is back in our court to provide an opportunity for more students to speak with their community. We’re searching for another venue.
