Global Collaboration and Digital Storytelling

My students need laptops and webcams to engage in online, global collaboration and digital storytelling so they can move beyond using technology for social casual interactions and use it to build global skills and tolerance.

My Students

My students are a group of hard-working and inquisitive learners. They work hard and they play hard. I have worked with them for several years as their sponsor of our school Technology Club. I am following them from grade to grade and have come to know that they love to immerse themselves in creative, innovative and challenging hands-on experiences.

My school is dedicated to teaching to the whole child so I want to fill every day with an active discovery that challenges the mind and body.

It also promotes the idea that we can always challenge ourselves to reach greater levels of achievement. This respects the individual learning levels of my students and promotes language, collaboration, innovation, creativity, and endurance. This approach is important in a community that lacks extracurricular opportunities and struggles with language because of economic and academic disadvantage.

My Project

Student learning needs to move beyond the textbook! Being born in a digital world opens many multimodal communication opportunities to apply real world skills. Using these simple laptops with webcams, students can reach out to classrooms from across the world and build virtual problem solving and storytelling teams. They can meet virtually using Google Docs and Google Slides as well as meet face-to-face with webcam technology to discuss their group progress. They will choose and discuss topics that affect not only their local communities, but also affect communities around the globe such as poverty and pollution. They can also create stories together that are more personal and vastly different such as family and culture.

Students will gain a broader perspective and understanding on their ability to collaborate, build empathy and tolerance, and how their personal actions can have a local and global impact.

A successful collaboration will increase communication skills, develop trust across borders, and solidify the idea that digital tools can be used for more than just casual social encounters. Student mindset will change. Digital tools can be used to shrink our world, unite our thinking, and make us all storytelling partners and problem solvers that are part of the same global community.
