Looking Closely at Student Work in the Digital Age with Educator Innovator, KQED, Project Zero & MakerEd

About this Series

As technology becomes increasingly present in the classroom, and school assignments frequently leverage digital media, teachers' roles as mentors & learning facilitators continue to grow. How do educators make sense of what youth are producing today -- driven by interests & passion -- and mediated by digital tools & openly networked platforms? How does that understanding help educators evaluate the work -- for and with youth -- and allow them to support youth to grow as learners? And how can teachers help youth take advantage of the tools of the digital age to express personal voice as a 21st-century citizen? Be a part of this three-episode series with KQED, Educator Innovator, Project Zero, and MakerEd.org that focuses on looking closely at the work of youth in this digital age.
