Starting next week I am going to be working on my “magic spot” project with students. I have been doing this without technology for a couple of years but I want to incorporate technology more meaningfully into the students work.
So, starting next week I will be taking a couple of grade three students and some iPads outside. They will take a photograph of their spot. With hope we will get outside every school day and take a photo. We will then put these photos together into a stop motion video.
I hope to create deeper connections between people and places. Often at international schools I feel that students and teachers do not feel connected to their place. When people feel more connected they will be more likely to take action for their space (check out my thesis if you’re really more interested in this).
Would love some ideas if anyone has them.
