Virtual Voices Village
Virtual Voices Village is an educational website featuring work by students with disabilities. They are creating a digital village to communicate with their friends and share ideas by publishing stories, poems and artwork. Students review and photograph camp activities, local sports and cultural events. “Reporters” develop their journalism and communication skills by interviewing successful role models, including SET-BC student alumni, professionals and athletes with disabilities.
VVV creates opportunities for students with disabilities to express themselves and have a voice in their community:
- Children throughout British Columbia publish work created at Virtual Voices Summer Programs, Braille Literacy Summer Programs, Accessible Book Project Days, and Student Writers Workshops.
- Senior students and SET-BC graduates act as mentors, trainers and reporters to write articles and select accessible learning activities.
- Students from other countries contribute art, writing and news reports in the international gallery.
- Editorial students receive academic credit for their work and gain leadership experience, technical knowledge and employability skills.
- Teachers, SET-BC consultants and technical specialists assist students with content, access and interactive website development.
