      In this edition of StudentSpeak, George takes us into the music studio to meet his friend and musical partner, James. They talk about how learning to make digital music has helped them express themselves and reach wider audiences. “We connected with people during the summer who were from New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, who liked our music,” George says. “And I’m still keeping in contact with them, giving them new music, even from the UK.” “If people from different countries who have different music playing, like in the Bay they have their different styles, in New York they have their different styles. If those people say they like your music, then that’s a good thing. That means that your audience is wider than just Chicago or your own neighborhood.” Later, the two musicians discuss the challenges of keeping up their personal and professional identities on social networking sites. They decide to take up the StudentSpeak “no-Facebook” challenge.

        In this StudentSpeak webisode, we follow Terrence as he uses the filmmaking skills he learned at the Digital Youth Network (DYN) in Chicago to land a gig creating a promotional video for his former tennis coach's summer camp. Terrence then takes us inside DYN and introduces us to other teens -- sound engineers, photographers and filmmakers -- who are creating their own media and building careers upon the foundation of the digital skills they've learned. The ability to use digital media has become a valuable asset in many professions. But these students don't see their creative and technical skills simply as a means to an end. Rather, what they learn is helping them to discover who they are. "It's something I love, it's something that's just part of me," says Malcolm, an aspiring photographer. "It just really comes naturally."
