Serving Communities and the Net
There is a community of professors and staff at the university level who work in the field of service learning. A branch of experiental education, service learning aims at strengthening civic engagement in communities while providing learning oppurtunities. For a conference in Chicago in a few weeks, I've written a fairly straight forward paper to contribute to a discussion amongst these professionals on how personal media can change the way students interact with their communities, especially on the global level. See the paper, entitled 'New Communications Tools and Building Global Citizenship,' and comments here.
