Monica Gray & Annie Medaglia
It's no secret that today's youth love smartphone technology, whether it's to surf the web or video-chat with friends. Why are we not using similar technology in the classroom? This question was on the minds of Monica Gray and Annie Medaglia, who co-founded DreamWakers, a nonprofit that connects public school students with career speakers through Skype and Google Hangouts. These experiences have empowered students to feel capable and inspired.
