Video projects provide opportunities for young people to collaborate on content-related topics while honing their social skills. When learning, we need to reflect on the learning itself to actually grow from it. Fast-paced societies allow far too little time for such reflection, especially in our youth. Teachers feel …

Consider this for a moment. As the blight of Ebola decimates populations in West Africa and carves room on the cover page of every major press release, a group of teenagers in Accra, Ghana took it upon themselves to dispel misinformation surrounding the deadly virus.
