Kyle Empringham – The Starfish Canada

By Leigh Cassell

Global EDU Student Chat ( @GlobalEdSsChat) is a student-led Twitter Chat that connects K-12 students around the world to discuss topics related to character education, social justice, and citizenship. #GlobalEdSsChat creates opportunities for students to network with others, gain perspective, build relationships with new learning partners in a literacy-rich learning environment, experience social media as a powerful platform for learning, and establish a positive digital footprint.

Since 2010, The Starfish Canada has been inspiring young Canadians to take leadership roles in their communities and to celebrate their peers contributing in the environmentalism movement.
