About Me? How to ask youth to represent themselves.

One thing I did this weekend was I made a widget box work on everybody’s profile. That might not seem that important, but here’s how it might be. If you go to my profile, you will see two Web Stories in the biography section of my About You widget. This is what I would like students to do to. So […]

What’s a Youth Voices profile?

Here’s a list of metaphors we thought of to describe a Youth Voices profile. It can be your personal online… …locker (where you can put video, audio, images and text that are important to you) …homeroom (where you stay connected with your Youth Voices connections) …home base (where you come back to re-focus) …home page (all of the work you’ve […]
