Students will use storytelling techniques to share and collect stories. Can be on any topic. Based on the stories they share and collect they create a fairy tale to put their stories in a more general context. The fairy tale will be a video production. With the goal of giving a moral in a way the audience will remember. They exist to teach a lesson. The fairy tales/videos will be shared with their community.

→ citizenship: sharing and collecting stories and extracting lessons from it
→ digital literacy: creation of video productions
→ creativity: they need to use their imagination to create a fairy tale and create the visuals for the fairy tale
→ community project: sharing of the fairy tales/videos with the community

Every project consists of 5 lessons, including home works and community activity. They utilise the Blended Learning approach – a combination of teacher-led virtual and in-class lessons, individual tasks and group work offline and online. However, the final decision on the format is up to a teacher, based on resources and technology availability.
