Exploring Our World With Digital Storytelling

My Students

My students are incredible. Being part of an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP) school community has helped my students grow into incredibly caring, reflective, and empathetic individuals who want to make the world a better place through inquiry and action. Every day, my students are working on developing their understanding of universal concepts like reflection, perspective, and responsibility.

My school is an incredibly diverse place, and this diversity makes it a unique, vibrant place for students to learn and grow.

Students are from a range of backgrounds. Some come from low socioeconomic backgrounds, while others are living in more financially secure households. About a third of my students are Latino; another third are black or Somali; another third are white. About a third of my students are English language learners (ELLs). Many are considered advanced learners in need of advanced differentiation.

My Project

Using the requested globe, as well as other research tools at our disposal, we will explore our world: both its many places and the topics of study it lends itself to, including human migration and access to water. Students will lead this inquiry, and I will guide them in locating necessary resources. Throughout our studies, I will aim for students to develop a better understanding of universal global concepts like peace, justice, and connection.

Together, we will work through the writing cycle to generate a collective writing piece that expresses thoughts, feelings, and big ideas about our learning.

We will then use the requested white boards and markers to create a video, which will serve as a visual representation of our writing. Students will each be responsible for sharing a line or two of the writing piece on their white board.

Students will choose how to stage the video; perhaps they will walk up to the camera with their board or maybe the camera will move throughout the room, where students are strategically posed with their messages, possibly with some sort of symbolic setting. Students will be responsible for filming the video and will assist in the editing process. With permission, we will share our video with others after editing it.

This experience in digital storytelling will allow students to explore topics and concepts of global significance, develop their writing skills, and share their thoughts and feelings with a wider audience.
