Project Link UpTell is a digital storytelling website/platform that provides students the opportunity to share stories through a variety of methods (video, images, drawing, text, speech, collaborative mode). The goal of the site is to encourage students to share about their lives and learn about the lives of others in order to learn commonalities and differences. The learning environment will help students obtain perspective about the diversity of the world and learn about issues that may or may not affect them in their day to day lives.
This project was developed at the 2014 HGSE Education Hackathon, where I worked in a team of 7 to prototype, test and pitch our project to a panel of judges. We won the Impact Award, as our solution was deemed to have the most significant potential for impact in the education sector at the global, national, regional and/or local levels.
I further developed this project in my Universal Design for Learning class. I worked in a team of three to build a more robust prototype for the project within a UDL framework. In addition to assisting with research and prototyping, I created the media and marketing materials for this project.
