You never really understand or appreciate the concept of time. We take it for granted and think that tomorrow is guaranteed. You never know when your time is going to run out, so don’t live in the past, learn to let go of things… Live for “now”.
So after reading the two articles, “The Incredible Reason You Might Start Seeing Safety Pins Everywhere” and “Dear White People, Your Safety Pins Are Embarrassing”, you could say I’m shocked but a little confused.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
