I sent an email back at the end of May 2009 to the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, inquiring about the possibility of joining their Speaker’s Bureau to advocate for digital literacy and a 21st century skills emphasis in our schools both in the midwest and around the nation. Their answer this evening? Sorry, you have to be a member or an employee of a member organization to “receive training” to represent P21, and only members can be in the bureau. Since membership is VERY EXPENSIVE, and Story Chasers is a non-profit, I have no hope of joining this club of digital learning and literacy advocates.
How sad and unfortunate.
