The idea for this webcast came when a teacher new to our work together contacted Susan Ettenheim and Paul Allison saying that she was thinking of having her students get involved with both Youth Voices and Taking it Global (TIG). This teacher, Melissa Lynn Pomerantz, a 10 grade English teacher from St. Louis joined us on the show.
To learn more about TIGed we invited Katherine Walraven, TIG’s Education Program Manager, and a tech integrator who use TIGed: Mali Bickley and Suzie Vesper. We wanted to learn more about Taking It Global - Ed.
