In Our Connected World Everyone Makes a Difference

The COVID-19 pandemic forces us to look at our connected world.  More than ten year ago, students attending CyberSmart Africa’s first partner school in rural Senegal wrote, narrated and filmed short one minute stories. These stories provide us with an unusually intimate window into lives far different than ours..  The students — all the first in their villages to ever attend school — reveal their thoughts and dreams for the future. My personal hope is that, now stuck at home, you will watch these stories. As we see most clearly today – in our connected world, we can learn from each other and everyone makes a difference.

TEACHERS & PARENTS AND BORED KIDS. Stuck and home and running out of things to talk about? We’ve provided writing prompts and conversation starters below:
