Determine the best platform for this student-to-student interaction.


Select schools to serve as pilots

Gather and organize content

Communicate plan/new resources

Continuous improvement goals

What direction should we go next? What improvements are needed? What additional stakeholders should be consulted/notified? What are the next steps? How do we measure impact on curricular goals?

Evaluate program impact

Include potentially underrepresented groups

Include Special Ed students and English Language Learners in content creation. Refuse to let the "digital divide" exclude any student groups.

Students will be active, self-directed learners. Students will improve their communication skills. Students will connect and contribute to their communities through creating content that helps others.

Build support

Be intentional in efforts to include non-white, non-female, low-SES students in content creation.

Conduct Lit Review

Recognize students for their contributions

Monitor Progress
