I'm wondering if we might increase both the multiplicity of our students' voices on Youth Voices LIVE! and ask students to read and annotate the texts that are in NowComment and Hypothes.is about "fairness" at http://youthvoices.net/fairness
So, what I want to follow through on is using Ask Big Questions and NowComment to have a place for everybody to have a common text and a common reference point for the "month" -- actually 2 or 3 weeks, given vacations and all.
That's the idea I floated some time ago, and I know that there are lots of other pressures and commitments and priorities, but I was wondering if we can't keep Youth Voices LIVE! connected to the Ask Big Questions each month. A
Recently, we added a new feature to Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net/askbigquestions, which can be accessed from the "Questions" tab on Youth Voices. We are planning to follow their monthly questions with rich and relevant blended (both asynchronous and face-to-face) experiences for the youths in our middle and high school classrooms.
