I just attended the iEarn Adobe Youth Voices session - highlighting voices from US, Brazil, Romania, South Africa & Uganda. I think empowering kids to share their voices and ideas for changing the world is one of the most important things we can do for them. 

It was so interesting to hear perspectives from other countries, especially somewhere like Romania where because of their history they weren't used to the idea of the right for students (or really anyone) expressing their opinions about issues of interest for them.  I lament that the in the U.S., while we have these rights, we're not used to the idea of students having important ideas to share about issues they care about. Also, we tend to take our technology for granted, where in other countries like Uganda, they are precious resources and really seen as tools of empowerment.

Thank you so much, Kim, for your thoughts about the program. 

I noticed a lot of bullying themed videos this year. Adobe Youth Voices really helps students express through video and audio how they are feeling about pressing issues in their everyday lives. Then, Adobe Youth Voices gives students the opportunity to take action, which is to publish these works and discuss with peers worldwide. The local experience becomes a global action. 

Here is another example, "What About Us" from Egyptian students. Amazing that this video was made before the Arab Spring events of this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YRW2_vVtHQ

We need to listen to our youths' voices.
