will be our guest on Teachers Teaching Teachers. In 2005, when he was Campus Rabbi at Northwestern University Hillel, Josh founded Ask Big Questions along with students Allie Gross and Lexie Komisar. In 2011, Ask Big Questions became a national initiative of Hillel, and Josh became its Educational Director. Since that time, he has guided the development of our educational theory, approach to training, and design of educational resources.

Recently, we added a new feature to Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net/askbigquestions
, which can be accessed from the "Questions" tab at Youth Voices. We are planning to follow their monthly questions with rich and relevant blended (both asynchronous and face-to-face) experiences for the youths in our middle and high school classrooms.
Specifically, we are using NowComment to engage students around texts, then we will invite them to scheduled Hangouts to talk about big questions, following the guidelines that Ask Big Questions provides. We started doing some of this last year http://youthvoices.net/live
and we are looking these resources to help us make these online conversations even more meaningful.
This is what we will be talking this Wednesday on Teachers Teaching Teachers: how to introduce Ask Big Questions into our secondary school classrooms, how to use Youth Voices and NowComment, and how to arrange Hangouts to have conversations across schools.
Please plan to join us at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt
at 9PM ET/6PM PT on Wednesday, January 14.
