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
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
