Life Round Here 2009 is accepting participants until March 31, 2009. Following is the invitation extended by Craft:
For those of you who remember Life Round Here 2007 you may be excited to know that Life Round Here 2009 is now accepting participants!
What we really want students to do is, Tell us, what’s it really like to live where you live.
You can use any of a wide variety of tools to create the story, from Microsoft Photostory to iMovie to Voicethread to anything else you can think of.
The requirements are fairly much the same:
1. It must involve students from 10 - 13 years old.
2. Your class/school/group must be able to publish six stories.
3. The stories must be in English or have subtitles in English.
4. Stories must be published and “watchable” by March 31, 2009.
I would also appreciate it if you would consider spreading the word. The official tag for this year’s project is liferoundhere09.
This sixth grader Spanish teacher is also working along with another voicethread, educational video. Watch the students/future teachers work here. The contents are all about basic educational psychology topics such as learning theories, theorists, and diversity. Congrats Chris!
