With Storyfab, all the world’s a stage. Usingthis augmented reality (AR) app, students can transform their classroom, schoolyard, or backyard into a movie set. They can customize virtual actors, enhance their set with props, and add special effects. They can then shoot the scenes, adding dialogue if they wish. Students become the producer, director, writer, and costume designer, and can even join the cast as an actor. Once they’ve created their movie, students can save the video to their camera roll and share it with friends on social media. Created by Spooklight SA for iOS, the app can be downloaded free of charge from the iTunes App Store.
One of the most powerful moments in my 22 years of teaching occurred on the last day of the school year.
During the first week of school, my students in rural Pennsylvania played a game via Skype with a group of students in a rural Kenyan village. During that call, they learned of a bridge in the village so dangerous that many children were not able to go to school because of it. Over the course of the school year, the children in Kenya taught my students how to garden. In exchange, my students designed and fundraised to replace that bridge.
