Week 7 -- The Youth Edge
This is the last official week of the book club. There will be an opportunity next week to share your thoughts on the Afterword, if you would like. But this week, we get to talk about how kids factor into changing how their education is being delivered. As Dr. Chen said in the Foreword, "Today's youth are building a pathway to change education." How are you involving your students in changes being made in your classroom or school? Are you allowing them to have a say in how technology is being utilized, maybe in projects they are completing? Or have students had an opportunity to do any teaching, either with peers or younger students? Has the fact that today's students are constant and natural users of technology led you to meet them where they are? Share what you've done, what you want to do, and/or questions you may have.
