Tapping the Power of Tech

“Even if people are still very young, they shouldn’t be prevented from saying what they think.” —Anne Frank

Technology is all around us, but did you know that activists—especially young activists—use technology every single day to fight for causes they believe in? Today, you'll learn how young people are tapping their tech skills to raise thousands of dollars, why certain #hashtags are more effective than others, and how holograms (yes, holograms) can help real people fight for their rights. Digital activism requires technology but also a whole lot of creativity, love, effort, and belief in a cause. Do you have what it takes to make a good cause go viral?

Make Your Own Video

Now it's your turn to make your own video. Read over the speech you wrote yesterday and decide on how you will make your words come to life. Think about things like:

- Is there a location or backdrop that might match up with your cause?
- Are there any props or people that could make your video even better?
- What kind of outfit would be best for your message?

This is your chance to be creative and motivate your audience to join your campaign. Once you have a plan, start recording! You may need to try a few different takes to get the best video, but that's all part of the process.

Can't make a video? That's okay! You can still set the scene and practice your pitch in front of the mirror or see if anyone in your family will watch your performance.

Share your work! We'd love to see your video whenever you're ready. Ask a parent to email it to us or share it on Instagram or Twitter by tagging @CampKinda.
