I just joined Ning yesterday and am already loving it. i feel like I am connecting immediately with smart and fascinating people who are passionate about the same things I am - youth, teaching, technology and making the world a better place! It's so energizing to connect with all of you.
In a few days I will be in Barbados working with youth there. We will be posting to our blog at www.youthlab.net beginning on Tuesday or Wednesday next week. i hope you can check it out. Youth LAB (Listening Across Borders) continues all summer with youth from Chicago and Barbados in conversation about the legacies of slavery and the hopes for a more future equitable and just world.
Also, I posted a video made by one of my students to Classroom 2.0 called The Hidden Cost of Cashmere. Skip posted some fascinating comments about it so I thought I would share it to see what other 's have to say. My student - especially - is so curious to know how people respond to this video. It is exactly 3 minutes long.
Thanks for everything.
