This is a very fun assessment/project that provides students the opportunity to show and explain what they have learned about Internet Safety. The Unit Question students are working towards is as follows: How can I use technology to properly and safely communicate? Students have the awesome opportunity to create a digital storybook about a topic regarding Internet Safety using a free online program called Story Jumper. This bundle includes the teacher directions, student directions, story graphic organizer, and rubric. In addition to the directions and rubric, students also complete a design journal to document their work while they are designing and creating their storybooks. This design journal allows students to brainstorm ideas for their work, outline their story, record their plan for each day, and reflect on the progress they made while they worked each day. This design journal helps students to take ownership of their work, hold them accountable for their time, and give them a chance to reflect on the process of designing and creating a storybook. This design journal also assess three of the MYP Technology Criteria: A, D, and F. At the culmination of the project students can use the peer editing sheet that is included to give feedback to their peers and then eventually present or read their final products to the class. In the past I have even contacted the nearby elementary school and shared the digital books with other younger classrooms. Students even have the option to buy the books and have them printed if they are feeling ambitious. Story Jumper is designed for classrooms and as a teacher you can create multiple classes and set passwords and monitor all student work. This project can also be easily differentiated by adding more or less requirements in terms of the number of pages that are required, characters involved etc.
