FYBY Summit Chase Intro
In this fun introductory video, Adam Langlois won't let anything get in the way of his planning for the 2011 FYBY Summit! Watch as he runs for his life, and for the future of the FYBY Summit, in this great video. He takes "owning your education" to a whole new level as nothing can get in his way!
Giving YOU(th) a voice in their Education
The FYBY Summit will take an in-depth look at the education system and how it reflects the needs of youth and their unique generation. Harnessing media (with a focus on video), youth advocates (who have spent the last four months reflecting on this very topic) will use the day to showcase their perspective on topics important to them and stimulate thought-provoking dialogue.
Our aim: To cultivate collaboration between educators and students, drawing
from the wealth of experience and knowledge that each respectively possess.
Our vision: To merge technology with education in an ongoing campaign to improve how we learn and teach.
"Own Your Education"
Request this material for classroom instruction
FYBY News has creative workshops and videos which you can use as an education tool in your classroom. Our workshops have been created by youth because we believe peer to peer learning is a powerful educational tool. Peer to peer learning allows students to recognize that each participant can be both a teacher and a learner which increases critical thinking and participation.
If you're intersted in using these resources in your classroom request form and we can discuss your ideas!
