"From blogging, to videoconferencing, to VoiceThread, I am struck by the possibilities for technology to level the playing field for all students, allowing them to take their voices to a global community, and, in the process, to become instruments of change as they challenge injustices and inspire others to social action."

Gail Desler is teacher consultant and technology liaison for the Area 3 Writing Project and National Writing Project. Through her NWP affiliation, she is also a member of the Memorial Library's Holocaust Educator's Network.

As a teacher, her passion is empowering students to become "change writers," taking their voices beyond the walls of the classroom and (often times) the confines of their communities. The projects and resources listed below are designed to help students connect events of the past to current events - with a focus on the rights and responsibilities of (digital) citizens.
