Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

This is a a student session about students and for students. The poster session will share examples of students around the world solving real problems in local, global and digital communities. Examples will include stories like this: https://medium.com/@digcitkids/december-is-digcitkids-approved-digcit4kidsbykids-bethatkindofkid-ab99e57f534a.

We must start early and often and continue to collaborate with other students and classrooms around the world because we are one classroom, one world and we need to be working together. It doesn't matter where you live, what language you speak, there are more things that make us the same and the things that make us different is the best part of being human: https://twitter.com/DigCitSummitES/status/961245852089094144
