Teachers Teaching Teachers #114 – Re-thinking Youth Voices – 07.23.08

Over the past several weeks, Paul Allison, Alice Barr, Susan Ettenheim, George Mayo, and Chris Sloan have been working with Bill Fitzgerald and other primates at Funny Monkey to move two school-based social networks, The Personal Learning Space and Youth Voices to a new Drupal site. Several teachers have been working together on these projects, and some of the curriculum that we have developed together is available here, at http://youthplans.wikispaces.com/curriculum.

On this podcast, recorded a month ago, Paul Allison and Susan Ettenheim welcome a student, a teacher, and our lead reaseacher and advisor for these projects:

  • Hannah Feldman, a junior at Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, PA, USA
  • Lynn Culp, Northridge Academy, north of Los Angels, CA, USA
  • Dave Cormier, University of Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown, PE, Canada

We talk about what Youth Voices might become this coming school year.

Much work has been done on this project, and we invite you to join us as we re-launch http://youthvoices.net on Wednesday, August 27, 2008. Join us, right here at EdTechTalk at 9:00pm Eastern / 6:00pm Pacific USA Wednesdays / 01:00 UTC Thursdays World Times
