Imagine a world in which children’s curiosities are magnified, helping them see the power of their thinking, perspective and voice. Spark Change illustrates what’s possible when students are given the opportunity to use digital tools to create and share content. Through the work of Liv, a young changemaker empowered to extend her own learning online, the book invites readers to explore how students can use technology as a tool for empathy, equity and activism. Liv’s online sense of agency serves as an example of developing a powerful voice and making global connections that deepen her compassion for people and the world.

This book:

  • follows a model of gradual release of responsibility – I do, we do, you do – to show how to teach kids the best way to approach connected learning experiences

  • illustrates the value of creation and connected learning, weaving in the critical need for digital literacy for students

  • features young students as digital learners, providing examples of digital activism and the power of authentic student voice and participation.
