Creating The Connections
Produced with funding from DEEWR – Adult National Literacy Project.
This flexible resource kit on CD guides teachers through the process of developing students’ skills to create digital stories about their local community. Activities develop students’ oral and written communication skills, ICT skills, project planning skills and employability skills. It has been developed to suit the diverse needs of students in a range of locations and educational settings.
The ten session plans in the kit are accompanied by printable tasks and handouts for students. Teachers with varying ICT skills will find useful information and training tips. There are also tips for teachers about setting up projects and maximising the development of the students’ skills as they engage with the activities in the resource kit. The kit includes sample digital stories and copyright-free photos and music.
