DISTCO, a pioneer in digital storytelling contest for K-12 students and teachers, is proud to announce a new partnership with Harmony Public Schools (HPS). HPS was selected to receive Race to the Top District Award by Department of Education. HPS sees “Race to the Top” as an opportunity to deepen personalization of classroom instruction so that every student has choice and customized support.
One of the strategies will be used for to achieve this goal is to extend the current Project-Based Learning curriculum in HPS. Part of the implementation, the PBL projects will be in a cross disciplinary, multi-sensory, technology-enabled, integrating STEM (Science , Technology, Engineering and Math) with Social Studies, and English Language Arts.
Through the partnership between DISTCO and HPS , HPS students are invited to participate in a special contest created for HPS Students only: DISTCO PBL. Specifically, the DISTCO PBL will accept HPS student’s Middle and High School Level II & III video presentations (digital stories). In addition, the DISTCO system will host students’ PBL digital stories for future review and access.
– HPS Students may follow the RULES under DISTCO website when submitting their work.
– The DISTCO PBL will have the same timeline with DISTCO 2014: December 2, 2013-March 25th, 2014.
