DigCitKids: Calling all K-12 students
At the age of nine, I started DigCitKids because as an elementary student, I want to bring awareness to digital access. Digital access doesn’t just mean access to technology. Digital access is the ability to connect, collaborate and learn with the world. Unfortunately, I only have digital access at home and the way I learn at home is so drastically different than the way I learn at school. Here’s my message to all school administrators and teachers,
If you want us to learn about the world, we have to learn with the world.
When I was in the first grade, I started blogging at home as a way to complete traditional assignments in school. I have been a guest blogger for Angela Maiers and have guest moderated chats on Twitter, presented at #DigCitSummitUK, Global Maker Day, TEDxYouthBHS and I’m only nine years old.
Despite all these accomplishments, no one at my own school has asked me how I would like to learn, so please join me in building a global network of K-12 #DigCitKids student ambassadors because I am determined to highlight student voice and student leaders who use technology and social media in positive and practical ways both in and out of the classroom.
