November 2019 Service Learning

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.

The GlobalEdSsChat team explores the ideas and opportunities in Service Learning, using the following questions as a guide to the conversation:

1. How do you choose the right service learning experience for you?

2. What do you gain from service learning and how might the experience benefit you in the future?

3. Why would you want to participate in service learning? How does it benefit your community?

4. What challenges might you encounter in service learning?

5. How can you engage and motivate a diversity of students to become involved in service learning?
