Playmaking for Families:  Using Drama to Help Kids and Parents Communicate

Playmaking for Families:  Using Drama to Help Kids and Parents Communicate | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"PLAYMAKING FOR FAMILIES" is a simple, family-centered activity: creating short dramatic works that can be performed in the house or yard by families or their friends and neighbors.

It's easy, it's entertaining, and it brings people together in very positive, very warm ways.

Rachel Scott's curator insight, March 8, 2013 9:57 PM

Visual effects, lighting, sound, costume design and props are all valuable technology skills in the digital and design technology strand as well as valuable creative skills for students to “Describe how people use different information systems safely to meet personal and family communication and recreation needs”. Students use these technological skills to encourage them to design and create constructive industries which are often exhibited through drama and dance.

 

What an amazing way of allowing Year 1 students to seek past their own imaginations and design and innovate a creative drama performance in which they would design the costumes and props for and decide as a class what type of sound effects and lights they wish to use as well as adding a recording element to produce their own play. The students might also decide to advertise their production and integrate the personal and family communication needs of the curriculum by sending out invitations for the production and creating a packaging in which the invites would be sent out in. What a fun way of teaching the technology curriculum but in an active and influential way.

All about fun, imaginative learning and training.

How to Incorporate Digital Storytelling to Empower Student Voice

How to Incorporate Digital Storytelling to Empower Student Voice | Serious Play | Scoop.it

As part of my classroom's blogging assignment, I decided to incorporate a digital storytelling component to give students an opportunity to share a story and add to their blogs. Of course, I needed to think about “why” students would be creating digital stories:

To gain knowledge on the structure of storytelling.To communicate a message through a non-traditional medium.To experiment with tools of digital storytelling to enhance their story: music, videos, images, voice, etc.To build a culture of sharing and empathy in our classroomTo understand the power of storytelling and the impact it has on listeners/viewers.

O nome vem realmente de game (jogo) mas mais porque se refere a um processo em que se utilizam elementos de jogo em contextos que não são de jogo, e não tanto porque a ideia seja transformar tudo num jogo.
