Join us online on Wed. April 5 at 1 p.m. central time to hear Craig Davis from the Youth Digital Arts Cyberschool discuss how schools, libraries, and community technology centers can encourage children and young adults to use creativity and gain technology skills through an online cyberschool. Davis will discuss the Cyberschool curriculum, how schools, libraries, and community technology centers can become involved, and the importance of getting young girls involved in technology. 

Boys and Girls from across the United States, Canada, Britain, Singapore, and Japan are learning how design and create their own video games, design and animate their own video game characters, and compose amazing digital music by taking classes at the Youth Digital Arts Cyberschool. These courses are for students from 3rd grade through high school. Students watch an instructor's screen and listen to the instructor's voice as they are taken step-by-step through the creation process. All the classes are self-paced so students can rewind, pause, and replay the lessons as much as they wish. To see what other kids say about the courses, try a sample chapter, and to watch a documentary of girls who have taken the courses at their school go to: www.ydacs.com.
