Edutech for Teachers

Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

And the Winners are…

March9

Not long ago I wrote a post about one of the many brainstorms of my Tech Club students: Sponsoring an anti-bullying paper slide video contest for students in our middle school.

Well, we did just that and after a terrific response, we are now proud to publicly share the winners of this year’s first-ever competition.

Check out their submissions below. Trust me, you’ll be impressed—especially by the fact that all of them were created by sixth graders!

First Place—Quintin N.

Second Place—Owen S., Nathan W., Alex S. & Daniel K.

Third Place—Jenna B.

Congratulations to all contest winners as well as all of the students who took the time to create entries for this activity!

Classroom Connections:

As previously mentioned, paper slide videos provide students with the opportunity to participate a powerful yet simple, low-tech digital storytelling activitity which includes reading, writing, speaking, listening, collaborating and creating—all essential 21st Century skills. Best of all, these “one shot wonders” allow all students—regardless of academic ability—to participate in a meaningful activity with their peers.

Regardless of content area, paper slide videos can be used as an authentic assessment, enrichment activity, an alternative to a traditional book project, and much more… For more info related to integrating these activities into the classroom, check out additional blog posts here and here.
