Multilingual digital storytelling project
35 supplementary school representatives came to NRCSE last night to hear how digital storytelling has reinvigorated supplementary schools and enthused the tricky 11-15 year old age group to continue practising and developing their language skills.
Digital storytelling has supported the development of critical thinking, collaboration, project management, multimedia and research skills as well as liberating the pupils to use important language skills including descriptive language, grammar, translation, subtitling – without focusing on these. Language is all about communication and that is what they have been doing so well.
The Critical Connections team from Goldsmith’s, London University will be holding a second practical workshop later this year to pass on some of the teaching methods and tools from the project to supplementary schools. Please make sure you read your emails from NRCSE to get a place on this practical workshop.
In the meantime, to view the films that have been made by pupils at supplementary schools around the country visit the Goldsmith’s Multilingual Digitial Storytelling project page.
