With these questions and ideas in mind, I stumbled upon a project called Robot Heart Stories. It is an experiential learning program and is an example of how transmedia storytelling is connecting geographically separated and linguistically different classes in education. Watch this video clip.
Read the Robot stories here. View the robot’s journal here from Montreal to LA. Wow, even a quick scan of these materials showcases collaborative, creative learning across the content areas in French and English!
How interesting! I’m not sure what this means, but I think it indicates the times are a changing. <3
