  • Project Justice @ Mountaintop - Fall 2010 at Mountaintop Montessori middle school
  • At the beginning of the 2010/2011 school year, I set up a shelf with resources about my two passions: technology and social justice. Somehow I wanted to bring about a convergence of technology and social justice into my teaching. This led me to create Project Justice, a week long immersion experience for middle school students. This project began as an opportunity expand the students thinking about social justice and to give them an avenue through technology to raise awareness for issues that they care about. I can't measure the long-term change this experience had on the students, but what I didn't expect was the change it caused in me. By giving the students time and space to learn about the larger issues in the world, they were able to share their voice and their ideas for changing the world with me and others.
