Use Technology to Take Action



You did it! Over the course of the last week, you have learned about current and historical student social activism, what your rights are as a student citizen, how technology can be used to create, connect, and propel a social movement, and what you need to consider when starting or supporting a change making movement. You are on your way to changing the world!

I encourage you to continue to pay attention to what is going on around you in your school, community, state, etc. What could be improved? How might you help positive changes to happen? Look for opportunities to use your knowledge, skills, and talents to help others.

If you're interested in learning more, here are a few resources to get you started:
