Teachers +Beth Sanders @MsSandersTHSand +Daniel Whitt @WhittMister join us on this episode of TTT to talk about Youth Converts Culture youthconvertsculture.com along with their Alabama colleague, Al Elliott @ellication.
Youth Converts Culture (YCC) is an Alabama-based initiative combining technology with empathy to push education forward. YCC believes that empathy, student voice, and social awareness should drive instruction in the 21st Century. The YCC panel (brought to you in partnership with IDEA—the Institute for Democratic Education in America) will focus on constructing new, responsible, and engaging learning strategies designed to empower our youth to grow, communicate, and learn in a way that is congruent to who they are at their root: global citizens connected to the world as pioneering digital natives.
Daniel Whitt is a teacher, a digital media specialist, a filmmaker, and a social activist living in Madison, Alabama. He is Co-Founder/Co-Director of Youth Converts Culture.
Beth Sanders is a teacher, a technology consultant, and a social activist living in Birmingham, Alabama. She is Co-Founder/Co-Director of Youth Converts Culture.
