Youth Voices: Tell Your Students to Speak Up

"Calling All Modern Students! Edutopia.org wants to hear from you about which skills you think your school should teach to help you succeed in life. Kids are experts on the modern digital world, and we think it's time adults listened. Create a video stating your opinion, and submit it by October 15 -- we'll publish our favorites on Edutopia.org.

It's simple -- there are just five steps:

Create a video, no more than one minute long, answering this question:
"What do you think is the most important skill to learn for your future -- and why?"
The footage could consist of straightforward talking to the camera, or something more creative.
Introduce yourself with your first name only.
Obtain parental consent for taping and posting on the Internet if you are younger than eighteen years old.
Post the video on YouTube and tag it "edutopiaskills." (Note that YouTube users must be at least thirteen years old.)
Send an email to skills@edutopia.org, telling us your name, age, parental contact information, and hometown, and include a link to the video.
You'll need a (free) YouTube account to do the upload. Find YouTube's instructions for uploading here and for directions for tagging here."
