Iain from over at Edge of the Seat has started a fabulous Ning project that you might want to consider contributing to.
"If I could change the world" has been set up "with the idea that this could be a place where children could raise their voices."
From the website: "This is a global project where children from around the world can submit artwork and writings outlining their own ideas for making the world a better place. The submissions from this project will hopefully be made into a book."
This fits really nicely with our school's theme for the year "The Future Starts Now!" and is something I will be getting my students to be involved with next term.
Topics selected so far are: poverty, pollution and violence.
We will be creating original digital art and creating our online art gallery. Time permitting, I'd also like the students to create a short video that addresses the pollution issue.
Brilliant idea Iain! Head on over to this site if you think this is something you'd like to be involved in!
