Today as a class we participated in We are Silent, a campaign by Free the Children. We are Silent began in 2004 and challenges participants to stand in silent solidarity for 24 hours with children whose voices are silenced by not having their rights upheld.
In our hours of silence together, we spent a lot of time exploring the Noise Project website and truly listening to some of the Noise Intercepted projects; we listened to the snow falling, a pencil writing, and a car deck blinking. It was a nice change for the class.
We also had fun exploring different types of voices on text-to-speech websites.
