Digital Media to Save the World - January Webinar
Be sure to check this month's ISTEGlobalPLN Webinar!
Students have ideas that can change the world but do not know how to develop or express their ideas. Colleen Skiles shows you how in the January ISTE Global Collaboration PLN webinar.
With "Actions Impacts", students work in steps to use digital media to bring these ideas to life. Students invent, innovate or campaign for a Sustainable Development Goal, then pitch it to a Shark Tank for funding.
Some of the digital media that students use are Canva, Adobe Spark Post, Page and Video, iMovie, Stop Motion, Vlogging, Blogs and more. Learn how digital media can save the world.
