Paper Slide Videos: Anti-bullying Style!


Looking for another cool way to utilize the paper slide video concept in your classroom? Then how about organizing a contest for your students or for the really ambitious—your entire school?

No, I’m not completely crazy! It’s just the latest brainstorm of my Tech Club: To sponsor an anti-bullying paper slide video contest for students in both our elementary and middle schools. No kidding! They not only generated the idea, but I challenged them to create a sample video to explain the details of the competition via the morning announcements program. Of course, they more than met my expectations as their example also served to show the student body what a paper slide video actually is! Yeah, I know—these kids are ingenious!

To see what I mean, check our their example included below.


Stay tuned to see the winning entries of our first-ever Paper Slide Video Contest!

Classroom Connections:

Despite the theme, 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.

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.

BTW—In case you’re wondering, I tweaked the Tech Club image with the BeFunky photo editor, one of my favorite online tools!
