The MY HERO Website is a safe, virtual online space for teachers and students to share who inspires them and their heroes. By exploring MY HERO’s multimedia resources, students will be introduced to heroes of all ages who are making a positive difference in the world. Students use MY HERO’s state of the art multimedia tools in order to share their heroes with the world through stories and art on the MY HERO website. Teachers easily create a showcase webpage of all their students’ work. Participation in a MY HERO Celebrating Everyday Heroes Learning Circle gives students a sense that they too can make a positive difference in their own community and the world.
