Transcript of Laura López
Before immersing ourselves in the use of digital tools to develop our students' writing skills, it is indispensable to be aware of how important it is to be safe on the internet, and make them aware too
Module 2. Sharing Stories through Comics
Comics are powerful devices to get students write, especially if they are undergoing a difficult situation. It can serve both as a means of expression and a way to practice their writing skills
Module 3. Video Storytelling
Before editing a video it seems necessary to create a storyboard with all our plans and ideas for the video. Video storytelling appears to a be a quite complete tool because students choose the plot, images, music, special effects. They can give free rein to their imagination
Module 4. Collaborative Storytelling
Once our students are familiar with digital storytelling, it is time to work in pairs or groups and create collaborative stories. In this way they can learn from their classmates
Module 5. Storytelling with mobile devices
Mobile devices are not suitable just for communicating and playing. Students can learn with a lot of mobile apps, which may take place outside the classroom too. There is no doubt mobiles are motivating for students, and nearly all of them have access to them.
My favourite task
I particularly enjoyed the task about contributing to a collaborative chain story. All the participants wrote in a common 'padlet'. I would like to try this task with my students. I wonder if other tool would allow us to record our voices telling the story too.
My favourite tool/app
I found this application really useful. I used to gather websites I liked in the toolbar or in a Word document, but Pinterest is more efficient. It is like a virtual bulletin or cork board that allows users to find and curate images and videos. You can learn from other users' appreciations. I hope to use it from now on.
E-portfolio reflection presentation
I can try and make them sensitive to Internet safety and copyrights through this activity with 'Brainpop' and a Responsible Use Policy (RUP)
In order to keep our students' identities safe, it would be a good idea to create an avatar. I used http://www.doppelme.com/
This tool can be used by our students to create comics representing their emotions and worries: http://ntic.educacion.es/w3/eos/MaterialesEducativos/mem2009/playcomic/index.html
We can ask our students to create a comic about the English class, how they feel during the lessons. It could provide us with great feedback to improve our teaching methods.
Here you can find the storyboard I prepared during this module: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18m0tioFzci5wKDjdakWFDeCfJFNRG1b4IiqxzjEx05Q/edit?usp=sharing
Thanks to the tool Animoto I created this video about winning the lotto https://animoto.com/play/SCmsnC2Nrur3s51VBW5Lig
A possible activity in the class could be to ask our students to create a video introducing themselves. This could be sent to a school abroad and establish connection for a future exchange
During this module we evaluated a project in which students from different cultures and places make and share their writing contributions:
Thanks to the tool Padlet, the participants in this course created a collaborative chain story. This was my contribution: http://es.padlet.com/majegsm/chainpoem_E/wish/42185676
I will ask my students to make their own contributions to the board created in Padlet, as in this example: http://es.padlet.com/wall/gvkog19ke8dp
I carried out the evaluation of the mobile app
: Here you have my mobile learning lesson plan, which I would like to put into practice wth my students: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_8swovlBM12UG5Tek5yR3ZhLXc/view?usp=sharing
I Can Cards can help our students understand the activity instructions better, thanks to its straightforwardness. Here you have an example, using the app 'Magisto': https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_8swovlBM12LXdVYnhadkZCNGs/view?usp=sharing
is a booklet creation online tool. You can upload a PDF version of your document (lessons, assignments, and projects) or start a new livebooklet from scratch. For that you are provided templates to make our first uses easier. You can include pictures, videos and music, all mixed with potential appealing effects. I liked it a lot because it was easy to use and really attractive.
is a tool used as a video editor. I found it very useful, quick, intuitive and appealing. You don’t really need to know anything about video editing technology. Our effort (and our students’ too) is placed just upon the content: select pictures, write captions, comments, select the music and the template. Editing style is made for you.
