Nashua Teacher Walkout

Interesting article over at Will Richardson's Weblogg-ed today. It's about the Nashua High Schools in NH. Seems there's going to be a job action, and the students there are using digital video, blogs, and other social networking tools to cover the walkout. Wonder if they were inspired by the recent Hollywood writers strike use of similar tools to draw attention to their cause and keep people informed. Anyway, this seems pretty relevant to the discussion going on in the other Will Richardson post about NCTE standards. I think it's pretty marvelous that these students seem both media savvy, tech enhanced AND engaged in issues in their world.

What's most interesting is the discussion going on amongst the students of these two students on "the wall" of their Facebook profile.
