As part of their Education 325 class, Neeraja Panchapakesan, Fikela Hill, Albertha Sabree, Dildora Sharipova, and Patience Shepard worked with middle school girls from the Global Village School (GVS) on a digital storytelling project. Their goal was to discover whether a digital storytelling project could improve language skills of the refugee girls. The project had three parts: first, the Agnes Scott students shared a personal story of their own. Then, the GVS students told their own personal stories. Finally, the GVS students turned their stories into fictionalized movies. The Agnes Scott students found that the project improved the GVS students’ written and oral skills and developed their technological skills.  The presenters developed bonds with the GVS students and hope to continue working with them.
