Collaboration in the Global Classroom without Walls
Travelling Tales is an online program in which students from schools all over the world collaborate to create stories. Students are sorted by age and assigned an issue on topics that vary—from environmental to social issues. Once assigned a topic or part of a story, students have 48 hours to work with their classmates to add to the story, complete with drawings and voiceovers, which teachers then upload to Adobe Spark. On the Travelling Tales Media page, students can take a look at the latest Travelling Tales made by classrooms around the world.
