  4. Encourage students to use social media to share the results of their group projects. They may submit stories to the school newspaper, the generationOn website, or the local media. Encourage them to tweet and share stories and impact and motivations to others.

  5. Students may use SurveyMonkey and other tools to conduct further research on reactions to their project.

  6. Use the "Chalk Talk" process to conduct a group reflection. 

  7. Celebrate the success of the service-learning project by sharing a reflection and demonstration video with a pubic audience. Post it on the school website, share it with community partners, and share with generationOn.  Here is a quick media guide/timeline.
