International Community Voices - The 2014 LRNG Innovation Challenge

Jane Higgins, Kimberly Slattery-Gaston, Nick Deming, Paul Allison, Renée Ehle

This project will bring a group of fifteen immigrant teens together with teachers and New York City Writing Project teacher-consultants to create an online community called International Community Voices. The online space will be housed on YouthVoices.net and will be used to share students’ interest-driven projects aimed at building their English Language capacity and academic skills. In the two phases of the project, educators will develop tasks for students to complete that combine academic and interest-driven learning, and host an after-school program for 15 students of varying ages and levels of literacy to create multimedia projects, share them, and earn badges. Students will interact collaboratively with leaders and each other as peers and mentors while having the time to strengthen language development and academic learning while engaging in meaningful play.
