Student News Net's picture

Student News Net 

Student News Net, SNN, is blazing a trail in instructional technology defining best practices and how social media can evolve to social learning. Founded by an educator with classroom teaching experience, SNN had its origin from 1999-2003 as a student news section within a major broadcast network's website. SNN has been continuously produced as an independent site since 2003. SNN today has the same two areas of focus it had in 2003 to: 1) motivate students to learn through offering compelling, relevant, and original content tightly aligned to proven principles of learning and curricular goals/standards, and 2) research and publish content to support students’ quest to identify successful career paths. With over 15 years of experience producing digital content and an in-depth study of educational technology, Judith Stanford Miller, M.Ed, M.A., SNN founder, is leading the charge to leverage technology as both a motivator and mediator for meaningful learning.
