This post shares an experience in the Texas City High School and the implementation of a "digital media an design project with high school students." The author had worked with the school during the school year and observed many challenges including "the daunting and daily task of keeping students academically engaged; the corrosive effects of chronic absenteeism in the classroom; the impact of economic and familial instability on students, teachers, and schools; and the creative ways youth from poorly resourced schools and households are using digital media."
They set to work with a goal: "could we work with teachers and students to create a more dynamic learning environment?"
Read the article to see the project that was developed and what they have learned.
