Flipping for Fairy Tales

My students need 2 Sony Webbie video cameras.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Small town friendly students are ready to flip for fairy tales! I am a media specialist in a Title I school with over a 60% free and reduced lunch rate. I have the pleasure of teaching information skills and technology skills to Pre-k through 5th grade students, and to a self contained classroom with students that have autism.

Technology takes students to worlds' beyond their imagination. Today's students are digital learners and technology savvy. Students want to explore the world through technology not just read about it in text books. Students want to create, learn and explore using a variety of technological tools. For students to become global citizens and to follow the path of digital learning it is important to give students the technology tools they need to create, learn and explore the global world. My students want to and have asked to use technology tools, but I am limited in the technology tools that I can provide for my classroom due to budget constraints of all school systems. Also, being a media specialist I have to supply tools for over 400 students, which is hard to do with budget constraints.

To adequately prepare my students as global citizens and to teach them the technology skills they need to be successful in the 21st century I need a few technology tools. Students need Sony Webbie Cameras to explore, create and learn about the global world that surrounds them. Students need to be able to easily upload and share their knowledge and experiments with students around the world. Flipping for fairy tales is a project that will engage students in learning more about fairy tales, where they originated from and how to use different technology tools to create their own fairy tales. Students will use Sony Webbie Video Cameras to create their own fairy tales and will upload their fairy tales to share with a group of students and adults in Denmark, Ukraine and China. The flipping for fairy tale project will empower students to explore, create and become global learners, and it will also instill the needed technology skills to be successful in the 21st century.

This is your opportunity to participate in a global celebration of fairy tales, and empower students to become global citizens, and prepare them with the 21st century technology skills needed to become successful. In a time when so many things are uncertain in the world we need to all come together to empower students to reach out and learn new things, strive to make the world a better place, and to become global citizens. Sony Webbie Cameras are just one simple thing to help empower and enrich small town friendly students to create, explore, become digital learners, and to share their experiences with students and adults in Denmark, Ukraine and China.
