DML2014 Panelist Jessica Kaminsky on Making Youth Voices Count

The DML2014 Conference, “Connecting Practices,” will be held March 6-8, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts. Click here for more information about registering.

Through Hear Me, a youth voice project from Carnegie Mellon University’s CREATE Lab, students are getting heard. “They share their ideas and experiences through media, and this media then is used to inform adult decision-makers about how to make better policies and better practices on behalf of young people,” says Jessica Kaminsky, Hear Me project manager.

Kaminsky was interviewed because her work embodies the DML2014 theme and her panel provides a strong example of the kind of projects and programs you’ll be introduced to at the Conference. She will share how Hear Me creates partnerships and brings the youth voice to traditionally adult-dominated discussions at the Digital Media and Learning Conference on the “Channels for Youth Voice – Pathways Under Construction” panel, taking place from 9 to 10:30 a.m. March 7.

The Digital Media and Learning Conference is supported by the MacArthur Foundation and organized by the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub, located at the University of California’s systemwide Humanities Research Institute at UC Irvine.
