Some students in the Lower school have begun the Digital Storytelling Unit. In this unit the students will learn grade appropriate visual storytelling language, strategies and software. They will learn how meaning is created by combining visuals, audio and text.  Students will learn about various camera shots, replicate them in storyboards, practice identifying and analyzing them using https://www.commonsensemedia.org/lists/50-movies-all-kids-should-watch-before-theyre-12#little-kids. Using iPad apps such as ShowMe and Puppet Edu they will create short movies connected to their Unit of Study. Stay tuned for their movies!
