Not all teachers know or have time to teach digital skills

LESSONS LEARNED
A good idea...
Can only take you so far
Can be appreciated without being acted upon
Patience is a Virtue
Content creation takes time
Captioning process takes time
Publicity/marketing/name recognition takes time
Teachers need more TIME
So much content to cover; no time for "extras" like CLICK
Scheduled webinars were not well attended
Younger students need 1-on-1 help in creating
THE FUTURE
Student Collaborators
3 HS Seniors now collaborating
Rebranding effort and style guide
Developing a searchable website
Submissions in other languages
Beneficial for newcomer students
Family members can also benefit
Should reinforce pride in a child's 1st language.
New Avenues for Content
Students' social media networks
Chromebook rollout will enable more content production
HS Student Collaborators promoting the project to younger students
Measuring Impact
Need to determine how/where to promote
Need to determine how/where to display badges
Getting more students' input
Word of mouth among students 
More teachers are aware of/excited about the project
^ Hopefully awareness will lead to action!
Analytics: number of visitors to site
How does site impact digital literacy?
How does site impact other learning?
Badge program for students
Might encourage more students to participate
MOONSHOT GOAL: 
CLICK becomes known as 
"The Student-Created Khan Academy"
