Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

“Real Heroes Do Not Wear Capes” is a poster to introduce Digital Storytelling while raising awareness about the different ways that people served local communities during the covid-19 pandemia. Storytelling allows the students to work on their interviewing skills of the hero, their ability to storyboard/organize the story and decision making skills for what should be included in the visual and written part of the story, along with deciding the best tools to tell and share their story. These are all ways to meet the ISTE standards. The students not only become more aware of the role of members of their community and the needs they serve, but are inspired in how they can also personally improve the communities they belong to.
