Limited Capacity full

Our program is focused on using social media and other means of contacting non-profits, authors, businesses, and activists to help facilitate deeper learning partnerships with the wider community. As students are working on their deeper learning projects, they will also be researching what non-profits, authors, businesses, and activists relate to their work. Students (with the guidance and supervision of teachers) then Tweet to, email, skype, Facebook, phone-conference, and connect with the specific organizations or individuals that fit with their project. The goals here are multi-faceted:

a. Build global, national, state, city, and district partnerships

b. Develop interview opportunities with professionals in a variety of fields that relate to their topic and can deepen the expertise of both students and teachers

c. The partnerships should be an on-going thing as students are working on their project; however, it is also important to get some of the outside community to come to the exhibition and present their own work alongside and with students

d. To create possibilities for internships, travel, and more partnerships with experts from a wide variety of places and fields

e. To grow the audience that the students reach

f. To establish firm connections between school and the real world that makes education more meaningful and relevant for all. It makes it more authentic.

g. To get feed-back from experts in the field on student work.
