My students need materials to aid in digital storytelling, including an Akaso camera, iPad stands/cases, scrapbooks, and laminating pouches.
My students are deaf, hard-of-hearing, and deaf-blind. My campus serves as the high school level Regional Day School Program for the Deaf in our area.
Students are bused in from surrounding school districts to receive specialized services such as deaf education teachers, an audiologist, speech pathologist, VI teacher, intervener, and interpreters.
Most of our students come from low-income households and many have limited access to language (spoken English or sign language) at home. It is imperative for our students to learn new skills in a hands-on, visual way!
I teach classes over multiple grade levels, with varying abilities and they're all so excited about this project!
My students will use the Akaso camera (and iPad stands/cases) to record themselves voicing and signing about our Project Based Learned field trips that they've experienced this year, including visiting local Deaf owned businesses, our program-wide camping trip, and hands-on culinary lessons from professional chefs!
I asked my students what they needed in order to achieve our goal of producing meaningful digital storytelling projects and they said a GoPro-like camera (Akaso camera) and accessories, real scrapbooks with extra pages, lamination pouches to preserve artifacts from our excursions (ie. camp ground map or Deaf owned crepe company menu), as well as new word-combo locks to lock up our supplies in the classroom cabinet.
After they record themselves explaining what they learned on the PBL field trips by making a video, they'll digitally edit it, and upload it to YouTube. They will then paste the link to the video into the physical scrapbooks along with pictures. My students feel empowered and believe in themselves when they are able to teach each other recording and editing skills. Students also want to create online scrapbooks as well! This project will make our trips come to life for future students to enjoy for many years to come. I love their idea and completely support it!
