Short Session Description (one line):
English class students create digital stories to tell a story and connect to the world.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
This presentation is about a project for the 3rd form English class, where students get to create short digital stories instead of a paper for the class. The stories are then being shared with the world, where anyone can comment and discuss. The project lasts for a month and includes learning about copyright, creative commons licences and fair use. Students also learn where and how to find images and music they can re-use and remix for their stories. The students work in groups and can come up with any story, real or fictitious. They can also narrate a script (up to a page long) or simply use music and text on the images. The project is being coached by the English teacher and an Instructional Technologist.
