- This year my students, along with students across the country, have participated in the KQED DoNow project. This weekly activity encourages students to use social media to engage with and respond to current events, art, and pop culture by learning about them through a multi-media weekly blog, and tweeting their responses in an open discussion. Through this project, my students have reported feeling more informed and involved in current events--they feel that their voices are heard on a national level, and several of them have been featured on the DoNow “weekly roundup” as representatives of the voice of youth in our country.
Now, what if we took this momentum, and added an additional component--one that helps students see that these national issues are at play in their own lives, in their own local communities?
