I like to use the Digital Technologies Hub for ideas and resources. One lesson idea which integrates Digital Technologies with English is Fairytale Fun. Students listen or read a well-known fairytale (e.g. The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears) then discuss the plot development and narrative structure (orientation, complication and resolution). Next, students create a timeline of significant events within the story, using pictures, words and/or sentences. Following this, students use PowerPoint or Keynote to order or create their own set of slides based on their timeline.
In this activity, students learning about the structure of a narrative, to identify significant details (abstraction) and how to sequence events. By using a well-known narrative, students can simply recreate the story or create a variation and write their own.
