Today, I introduced a research project to my students for the Indus Valley Civilization. This time, it will be presented in the form of Digital Story-Telling. I first learned about this pedagogy while at the Learning Institute at the American School in London. I was eager to introduce this to my students and today issued the assignment. I will post the written assignments here, but note that we went over them in detail, explained questions, and then showed them some examples (including mine).
The initially had mixed reactions to the assignments. Some are very excited – others are non-too thrilled. We’ll see how it goes, however. I’m hoping that this will be both a fun and educational exercise – teaching students new skills, how to research, how to cite materials, how to troubleshoot technological issues, and even develop some creativity.
