“My project involves enabling students to create multimedia digital storytelling videos that detail their immigration journey to Lawrence, Massachusetts. The funds from the NoVo SEL Innovation Fund will be used to purchase Chromebooks, microphone headsets and a Vimeo subscription. These laptops will enable English Language Learners to improve their language and technical skills while at the same time fostering self-awareness and interpersonal skills as they conduct research, craft a presentations and collaborate with their peers. Students will develop empathy, appreciation for diversity and respect for others when viewing and discussing the projects of their peers.”
