Digital Storytelling in German

Storytelling is an ancient art that encourages creativity and the sharing of knowledge. Digital tools allow us to create stories quickly and share them to a wider audience.

In this example, students studying German applied their knowledge and understanding of German to a conversational story, using PicCollage to animate the discussion with speech bubbles.

Thanks to Mrs. Campiche and her students for this example.

Collaborative Revision with Quizlet Live

Quizlet Live is a fantastic tool for reviewing, consolidating and evaluating learning. Students are automatically grouped together in teams and are then asked questions about a set of flashcards on Quizlet. The interesting thing is that all students have different answers on their screen, but only one screen has the right answer – forcing students to collaborate, question and clarify the correct response.

This example comes from a biology class in the secondary school where students were revising for a quiz on human impacts on the environment. Thanks to Mrs. Egli.IMG_9222
