Recent surges in technological innovation connect educational communities worldwide, and have certainly changed the face of learning. Through various forms of media, we are each consumers and producers of stories that serve to connect us with others. This new wave of expression drives us to become not only informed learners, but empathetic global citizens. This hands-on session focuses on strategies to:

  • build a writing community within the classroom that focuses on empathy, trust, and the ability to understand others on a global scale
  • use interactive writing prompts that engage students
  • involve photography and videography with writing as a connective storytelling tool
  • encourage students to explore various styles, finding their own authentic voices
