    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.

    Project JusticeJustice: Empower Student Voices
    Objective
    21st century learning encompasses so much more than reading, writing and arithmetic. It requires critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration. Digitally connected students need to explore the world to understand and address global issues. Project Justice is a way to integrate 21st century interdisciplinary themes of global awareness, economic, civic, health, environmental and digital literacy, while tapping into a student's innate desire to share their voice with others.
