ICYMI: Think It Up

“I like the challenge of trying different things and wondering whether it’s going to work or whether I’m going to fall flat on my face.” By Johnny Depp

On Friday all three major networks, CBS, NBC and ABC, aired a live show called Think It Up. (If you missed it, watch it. It gave me chills and hope that we are moving in the right direction) Think It Up inspires public school students in grades 7-12 to pursue their passions through student-powered, teacher-led learning projects. They have partnered with donors choose and others such as Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in order to help support educators and change classrooms. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter. To get started with Think It Up Educators go to thinkitup.org/getstarted

Other great opportunities to bring to the classroom that Think It Up referred to are below:

Just Keep Livin

Global Citizenship

Project XQ

Change Makers

*ICYMI = In Case You Missed It – They also featured this video that has been popular on YouTube called Teaching Center

More than 60% of the jobs of the future don’t even exist yet…are you preparing your students for your world or theirs?
