Storytime Open House

It’s been a while since I’ve remixed the IB Learner Profile.

I’ve made a few versions of it via Haiku Deck, like this one here.

And I still love the remix version I made inspired by ‘texts from Hillary.’

I want to take a step back from narrating this digital story.  Instead, I want to ask my students to take the lead.  There is no shortage of amazing Creative Commons images featuring beloved Lego friends, just check out Compfight for evidence of that.  But what if my students made their own CC images with Lego to retell the story of the IB Learner Profile?

Will everything be awesome?

Can I encourage other teachers around the world to make their own IB Learner Profile digital stories too?  Could we share our work and examine the different perspectives we take?

According to the Digital Storytelling Process, I think I’ve just come up with my proposal for anyone reading this right now.  If you’d like to connect with me, please just leave a comment.  I think this could be the beginning to a really rad story…

  1. I love this! One of my school’s strategic objectives this year is to promote the Learner Profile, and what better way than through digital storytelling? Maybe I could bring your challenge to our Strategic Objective committee. The Lego idea is also a really cool way to make it more relevant and enjoyable for your students. On a related note, I don’t think you could have made a Learner Profile video with Donald Trump 😉

    1. Let me know how it goes, Cory–I think it would be a great activity for teachers and students alike, good luck!
