My students need technology such as headphones, splitters and a tripod to help facilitate digital storytelling.
What is your story? How many do you have? Kids have a million. I can't wait to see their stories come to life digitally. The possibilities are endless!
I have a class of 23 eager second graders.
They are excited to participate in writer's workshop. In the past, students have written and published paper books. Throughout the year they develop a love for writing and a desire to do more. Second grade is the perfect grade to foster this love of literature and writing. My second graders are smart and always willing to share their ideas and stories. Some students are drawn to nonfiction and others are all about the love of fiction. Their excitement for stories is contagious and I want to bolster it as much as possible.
I would like to further engage students, in writing, by providing the opportunity to produce digital storytelling. Students will write and publish digital stories using story-writing software like Garage Band, iMovie, and other iPad apps. They will use digital cameras, video recorders, iPads, projectors, and their awesome imaginations. I am requesting headphones and splitters to allow students to work together. Cleaning cloths and stands will help keep our equipment clean and safe. I love combining technology into our learning. It increases student engagement and is highly motivating. My goal is to increase student learning in writing and communication. I want students to learn and practice in the style that is such an integral part of their lives: technology. What an exciting time to be a second grader!
I took a technology class on digital storytelling.
The ways that it can be used are many. I had so much fun telling my story in class. I am so excited to share that knowledge with my students and give them a platform to share their stories. These supplies and this project will affect some of these students forever. Thank you for considering helping us achieve our technology and writing goals!
