Two invitations in one message here.

FIRST, we want to ask you to write comments on the posts of 30 youth who are learning English and digital media at the same time this summer in the New York City Writing Project's "ELLs Summer in the City" program, which is funded by the NYC DOE's Division of English Language Learners and Student Support.

Please go see what they are doing at https://youthvoices.live Keep in mind that these young people are learning the language, yet are bold enough to publish their stories and poems and thoughts for the world. It's hard to measure what an impact you might have by writing back to a few of our youth! All you have to do is leave your name and email address under Comments.

You can also see their reflections on each day in their Google Community https://goo.gl/usdDVz and a lot of our curriculum for this three-week program is available as LRNG playlists, linked on this page: https://youthvoices.live/summer2017

SECOND, we want to invite you to join the teachers in this program, members of the New York City Writing Project. We meet on Teachers Teaching Teachers http://edtechtalk.com/ttt on THURSDAYS at 1 pm ET/10 am PT -- the end of our week. We meet to talk about Youth Voices, LRNG, teaching ELLs, connected learning, assessment, badges, playlists, and how much we love the youth we are working with!

Six New York City Writing Project teachers will reflect on their work in the ELLs Summer in the City Program.

We're using LRNG and Youth Voices in a three-week summer program for rising 10th graders.

Come hear how we are using playlists, XPs, and badges to engage and connect the youth in our program.

Check out our Playlists on Youth Voices https://youthvoices.live/summer2017 and our youths reflections in a Google+ Community https://goo.gl/usdDVz

Join us today at 1 pm Eastern /10 am Pacific at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt

The New York City Writing Project's ELLs Summer in the City is a laboratory where we are exploring the relationship between interest-based and disciplinary learning with social media at the center. This program argues for providing urban English Language Learners with freedom and trust, with choice and digital resources, in an era when educational policy is turning towards regimentation. Students and teachers are publishing on https://youthvoices.live, a public, openly networked forum that allows for peer interaction and collaboration beyond the immediate group. The use of LRNG playlists (collected curricula) and digital badges (https://www.lrng.org/o/youth-voices) is an innovative way for teachers to assess and celebrate student achievement.
