Maine has a student technology conference each spring; this year it's taking place on May 29th. The final session is something I'm involved in, along with Cheryl Oakes, Alice Barr, Kern Kelley and Jim Moulton, and we're trying to get data/perspectives from students around the globe to share with the students as part of a conversation about using Google tools and asking questions of the world. Picture an auditorium of 800 middle and high school students, all with laptops, all learning about the power of questions, data, and getting a peek into some aspects of "school" around the world from other students. I'm hoping you might take a moment to pass along the survey linked here
to students (or other teachers who have students) interested in giving us their perspective. Part of the project will demonstrate the accessibility of the world in our digital age - so the more students we have participating the more powerful the message to the students at the tech conference. If you would be willing to pass the link along to others you know around the world, whether by blog post, email, facebook, twitter, or your network tool of choice, that would be most helpful. We'll be pulling all the data up on a map for the students at the conference, with pins from around the world, and I appreciate any help you may be able to give to populate that map.
