In preparation for Banned Sites Week (9/17-9/24, 2011), one of our art teachers, Jeanne McDonagh, assigned her Photoshop students to create designs New Canaan High School will use to showcase its intellectual freedom celebration next September. Our objective in the Banned Sites Week campaign is to encourage other districts to unblock mainstream social media sites to promote unleashed learning, 21st century skills, and digital citizenship. We encourage other districts to join us. Our students are looking for feedback on their designs.
We invite you to post comment on the VoiceThread below. Does the design convey its intended message? What works? What would make it better? Comments are moderated, so they will not post right away. Please be patient. Thanks.
