Creating a New Pedagogical Space for Global Dialogue to Occur

Youth Media Reporter – an online journal about the field of youth media education is running an article I wrote about YouthLAB in this month’s issue.

Listening Across Borders: Creating Virtual Spaces for Youth Global Exchange
http://www.youthmediareporter.org/2007/11/listening_across_borders_...

The article discusses the need to create a different kind of pedagogical space where young people from around the globe can use the tools of participatory media (blogs, wikis, social networks, digital sharing sites, etc.) to connect politically and socially? How do we teach youth to “listen across borders”—the first step in creating a youth platform for global social justice? I would love to hear your reactions.
Thanks, Mindy Faber

Cheers!

I totally agree with the vision of the open communication. I have recently created a space myself, www.masterymaze.com, which is designed as an online community for students and teachers. When I designed the forum, I set it up so their is a seperate space for teachers and a seperate space for students. My goal is to enhance open communication on topics of interest to the participants. Eventiually I plan to open it up for full discussion for both groups.

I think we need to be more willing to trust and share; I am hoping I can facilitate a bit of that myself.

Thanks for the information!
