On this episode of TTT, we invite you to meet other teachers who have been using Youth Voices this fall to connect their students.

We shared our plans... dreams... ideas... worries...  as we moved into the fall semester.

We hope you enjoy this informal "meet and greet" -- out of which we hope many new connections might grow.

We will be meeting to talk about Youth Voices and how it is (or isn't) fitting into our curriculum often as 2014 kicks off! We gather at EdTechTallk http://edtechtalk.com/ttt each Wednesday at 9PM Eastern /6PM Pacific.

Please plan to join us when you can.

It has been exciting to see the posts and the comments flying into Youth Voices again this fall!

All that is needed is an hour on Wednesday evening, earbuds, and a Google+ account that you can Hangout on.

Come join us for a conversation that could make all the difference for your students!

TTT#374 New Youth Voices Connections: Shantanu Saha, Karen Fasimpaur, Jo Paraiso, Jake Jacobs, Paul Allison, Chris Sloan 12.4.13


58:38 minutes (40.26 MB)

On this episode of TTT six teachers get together to consider how they might get students more deeply connected on Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net.

Paul Allison http://youthvoices.net/ndss#courses and Chris Sloan http://youthvoices.net/Judge#sloan host:

for this conversation

Here are some of the questions we've been asking recently:

What if students were encouraged to create projects for each other? What's the difference between writing a "Discussion Post" and creating a "Wiki" page on a social network like Youth Voices? How might we consider connecting students more often in spaces like Skype or Hangouts? What would it take to build a "Youth Voices Live" space for young people? How can we engage students in deeper, meaning making in their conversations with each other?
