Getting Connected

Digitally…Socially…Spiritually

Go to Word Cloud to create a piece of word art that describes you.  Play around with the website.  Ask questions if needed.  Download and attach it to the Padlet down below.  Also, add a prayer request to the Padlet too.

Devotion

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:14-15

Digital Storytelling

Literacy Basis

Common Core writing standards require writing and publishing using digital tools beginning already in Kindergarten and continuing through Grade 12.

With guidance and support from adults, explore and use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.8.6
Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and present the relationships between information and ideas efficiently as well as to interact and collaborate with others.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.11-12.6
Use technology, including the Internet, to produce, publish, and update individual or shared writing products in response to ongoing feedback, including new arguments or information.
Digital storytelling is the practice of combining narrative with digital content, including images, sound, and video, to create a short movie, typically with a strong emotional component.   Today we will learn many different ideas to incorporate digital story telling in your classroom.  
  1. First, we will make a Stop Motion video using both Google Slides and the Stop Motion app
  2. Second, we will explore a low tech but fun and creative way for students to tell a story or share a tutorial using Paper Slides.
  3. Third, we will explore Animoto to make a video on any curricular topic of choice.
Activity #1 Stop Motion Using Google Slides or the Stop Motion app.
Activity #2 Make a paper slide video with a partner about a topic of interest (sports, fall, technology, etc.)
Activity #3 Animoto Video about a book you are reading or a science/social studies topic you are studying now.
