Presentation Title
“Building Online Communities for Youth”

Description
Our examples for this presentation, Youthvoices and Personal Learning Space, are school-based social networking sites, a place online where our students share personal blogs, do research into topics of their own choosing, work with images, and develop profile pages that connect to other students from Canada, Brazil, USA, and other countries who are joining in. As students develop an online identity with maps, avatars/icons, interests, likes and dislikes, teachers and moderators of the space can facilitate communication and networking skills. (Live event Oct. 24, Wednesday at 9:00pm EST http://edtechtalk.com)
