Video Projects for Community Partner: Crisis Nursery

by Ann Abbott

Because I think digital literacy is such an important professional skill, not just for the future but also for right now, I am always happy when my Spanish community service learning students create digital products for our community partners. It helps our partners, but it also develops important, valuable skills for our student. And there's a big bonus: the results of their projects are tangible; they can share links to their work when they apply for jobs or other types of opportunities to truly showcase their language proficiency, cultural knowledge and digital skills.

Here's a wonderful example of this type of project from my former student, Cassie Grimm. She made videos in English and Spanish for our community partner, Crisis Nursery.

(And here's an update on what Cassie has been doing after graduation: "El otoño pasado, fui para enseñar inglés en españa en un campamento lingüistico (y necesitaba actuar como no hablé ni entendí español jaja). Ahora, estoy trabajando para PricewaterhouseCoopers en la Ciudad de México. Estaba apoyando a empresas americanas con presencia aquí en México, pero ahorita estoy haciendo capital humano, haciendo reclutamiento para un equipo internacional. Por supuesto, si quieres enviarme unas preguntas, podría facilmente grabar un video para tu clase, porque de hecho estoy mejorando mi español mucho viviendo en México, y es una experiencia increíble (especialmente considerando que la gente no piensa muy bien de México).") 

See for yourself what your students can produce!
