Check out Monday's launch of Letters to the Next President 2.0, then join us for a follow-up conversation on TTT http://edtechtalk.com/ttt this Wednesday at 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacific:
Building on the success of the Letters to the Next President initiative in 2008, version 2.0 (L2P 2.0) continues to leverage the excitement of a national election to power civic learning for a new generation of teachers, mentors, and youth. In this hangout, educators described the power of participating in the previous iteration of L2P and highlighted the growing set of opportunities and resources available to educators and mentors in support of youth voice and engagement in the lead up to the 2016 Presidential Election.
I love nearly all handwritten letters.
Is it because of the connection to the person because of the handwriting? I think not, because I like typewritten letters nearly as much.
Is it the one-to-one nature of the communications? I don't think so, because I don't find nearly as much pleasure from an email, even if it's one with special words meant just for me.
Is it the fact that it's taken time and special effort to reach me? Yes, I think that's part of it.
Why do I love tweets but hate text messages?
All of this doesn't seem exactly related to digital vs. analog, but there's something in that.
Video and audio aren't really media that my brain cozies up to, but that's a personal thing.
Does any of this resonate with you? Which kinds of communicated words do you love and which not so much?

As Digital Writing Month http://www.digitalwritingmonth.com/ shifts into its second week, the theme of exploration is centered around visual literacies.
Guest writers at #DigiWriMo are exploring the intersections of words and images, and stories, in a variety of ways, asking participants to play around with the notions of the visual medium.
Topics, and daily inspirational activities, include how images spark writing (and vice versa); the ways in which family photos can connect us to family history; the emergence of infographics as way to shape data; and the telling of stories through the uses of graphic novel and comics.
We're doing inquiry around how we "see" the world, and how what we see connects with how we "write" the world.
