My quick thoughts, back stage, and rants as I try to Teach kids about the Web while learning how to help others build a better Web.

Think our educational research dollars should also focus more on people rather than p values. changed lives. That is only effect size I need. Let's use educational research dollars to invest and celebrate local knowledge not impose interventions.

still blown away by graduating ceremony at @scsu . Over the last six years our scholars proved it.

Being a member of the team was probably the most important thing I have done to date as a scholar.

We held  our first session of Power and Passion-Writing for Change as part of . I am always inspired by the scholars who join us.

This semester Gear Up New Haven is offering after school academic programs on our main campus. New Haven Public Schools has donated the transportation and SCSU has donated the faculty time to run classes in math, English, and the Arts.

As literacy and technology coordinator I curate the learnign opportunities in the literacy strand. Mainly I just show up and learn.

In our first session we completed a challenge in the "Letters to the Next President" series. Specifically we completed a "Do Now" that had students define what it meant to be politically enaged. We recorded our definitions using iPads and I will be remixing these into a video.

Next week we will have two tasks:

Words have power. They are shaped by those with power to mantain a narrative and words provide power to the powerless. In our class this semster we are asking youth, "How will you use your words?"
