    Thanks Wes!
    My favorite in Next Vista, is the “Seeing Service” — “videos in this collection will highlight good deeds large and small …. The hope is that students who wonder about their own value will see what the people in these videos do and realize that those are things they are capable of doing, too. Students might encounter these videos as writing prompts, could produce one themselves as part of a project, or even choose to watch one just to be reminded that there are indeed good people out there.”

    There are only 2 videos posted so far… let’s find more good news to share!!

  2. Wesley Fryer says:

    I agree with you Charlene, it would be great to encourage more folks to post videos in the “Seeing Service” category. In fact, it would be a great project to have students involved as the “technology experts” recording video interviews with people in their community. Those videos could subsequently be contributed to Next Vista in that category!
