Media is what you create. CARMA 2013 was an unprecedented example of a reflection over journalism, media, reporters and those very idiosyncrasies which have enveloped our news channels.

Noor is a Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) student, an initiative of the U.S. State Department. According to her host couple, Glendale's Sarah Yancey and J. Robert Kneightley, Noor has adapted nicely to life in America and at school in Kirkwood.

 

I am just a little biased toward Parkway, because I taught English at Parkway South and was assistant principal there," said Yancey. "But I have to say everyone at Kirkwood has been wonderful to Fatima. Kirkwood is a very welcoming community."

#InternetFreedom Day: Giving a voice to the voiceless

#InternetFreedom Day: Giving a voice to the voiceless | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

Hey folks – today is Internet Freedom Day and that's a really big deal. A year ago, many good people on the Internet came together to stop SOPA. Internet Freedom Day reminds us that we all need to work together to preserve what we have and to help everyone realize their own individual voice. It's something which we assert frequently, not just one day, but it's one way to remind ourselves that what we take for granted can be lost.

@TSonenshine @StateDept "Leveraging Culture and Diplomacy in the Age of Information" | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

By engaging the diversity of the American cultural community and leveraging all resources, we can expand and leverage our cultural diplomacy. And that helps us reach more people through the power of our ideas and values.

 

... We know that social media can expand our outreach through what we call 21st Century Statecraft. So through our Global Connections and Exchange Program, we link up students, educators, and community youth leaders online. Our Youth TechCamps empower young people around the world to engage via digital networks. And in the memory of the late ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, our Youth Network will provide specialized trainings in digital dialogue and online media sharing, discussions on global issues, and community building to schools in the United States and Middle East and North Africa region.
