My dear, very smart, and seriously good friend Angela Maiers asked me to help spread the news about Dot Day. I am happy to oblige and I hope that you will join in spreading the word as well about a project that asks students to make their mark.
Inspired by Peter H. Reynolds treasured story, The Dot, students are encouraged to make their mark by starting simply with a dot and then seeing where that dot takes you.
Over 350,000 educators and students have registered so far for International Dot Day and have signed up to share their stories with one another using the Skype in The Classroom Network. It is awe-inspiring to see children, teachers, leaders and entire communities representing all 50 states and spanning 6 continents join together to let one another know how much they matter to the world.
And, this is a perfect time to issue a challenge to all the worldchangers and leaders in your community to Make Their Mark and Make it Matter.
There is still time to participate so please join us:
- If you are a teacher/school and want to participate, there is still time to sign up your students at http://fablevisionlearning.com/dotday/signup.html. If you are a student and want to participate, talk with your teacher and parent.
