Image field is required.

On Friday, April 5, we made it a requirement to add an image to any new (or edited) discussion post on Youth Voices. This is an experiment. We need images to promote posts on the home page and on channel pages. However, we also don't want to make it too difficult for students to post quickly at times What do you think? Should we keep it a requirement to have an image or should we make it an option again?

I agree with posting an image with their writing. If we are going to promote visual literacies in our classroom we should really have our students think about why it is important to post an image and what relevance it has to their writing. In addition, students need to think about how most writing is portrayed today online with images and the reasoning behind it.
