What do you get when you pair KQED, the public radio and televsion station in San Francisco, with National Writing Project teachers? You get Newsroom to Classroom, a pilot project in which pairs of NWP teachers from around the country develop resources and curriculum packages that focus on news topics and content from KQED's Low Down blog. You also get student-produced new media artifacts related to the topics and youth participation in KQED's Do Now current events Twitter-based program.

Join Matthew Green and Matt Williams of KQED, along with Chris Sloan of the Wasatch Range Writing Project and Kirsten Spall of the Area 3 Wrting Project, as they discuss the various dimensions of the initiative, from conception to implementation. We'll also hear a student perspective on this opportunity to weigh in on the issues of our times using digital tools.
