Teaching Tolerance Through Digital Story Telling

My students need a camcorder with a microphone, a Chromebook, and movie-making software to create their own digital stories that teach such issues as tolerance, creating positive change and respect.

My Students

For the past several years I have had the utmost pleasure of teaching an amazing group after amazing group of 5th-grade students. With each group of students leaving behind their own distinct mark on not only our class but myself. And, though the majority of my students come from a high-poverty, low socioeconomic communities; this has never stopped one of them from giving all they had during our time together or striving to make a difference in not only themselves but also their community. In my classroom not only do I constantly challenge my students to be the best they are capable of being they challenge continuously challenge me to discover new and engaging ways to provide them with the knowledge and skills they will need to become productive contributing members of our society.

My Project

As an educator, I strive to provide my students with plenty of opportunities to not express themselves but also enrich their learning in new and engaging ways. As we begin to close out our school year one of my goals is for students to demonstrate their learning throughout the year in a manner which is unique as they are. Through digital storytelling utilizing the Chromebook and movie making software to create a digital story "movie" in which to both teach and inspire other students to practice such character traits as tolerance and respect. Students will be able to begin with a digital storyboard to map out their project. From there, students will be able to use the camera to perform "skits" in which they teach valuable life lessons and character traits such as respect and tolerance for one another. Students will be able to relate this to our state standards in understanding and providing evidence of theme. Students will then be able to edit the movie for final print. Where they will be able to use the external hard drive to transfer their movie to disc for students in lower grades as a means to foster a culture of respect and tolerance within the entire school. Furthermore, these chrome nook and camera will provide students with the opportunity to create weekly podcasts that touch on one of the following: teaching tolerance, respect the importance of building a positive community and other character building traits. As well as serve as an opportunity to create learning videos of various concepts for students to use a resource at home.

Through this, my wish is that students realize the impact they have on not only each other; but also our world.

As well as understanding that we are all connected.
