- Digital posters can be created as a traditional poster and then digital pictures of each can then be uploaded onto the parish website. Use themes like "Who is my neighbor" "When did you see me hungry?" "When I a was a stranger..."
- Digital posters can be created on Google Slides or PowerPoint, (change dimensions to be 8.5 x 11) . Students can share or upload their work to the catechist or catechetical leader to then be posted.
4. #sharethejourney Tweets Not all of your students have Twitter accounts, but what a great way to start teaching how to tweet as a digital disciple!
- After doing a unit on social justice and immigration, have students create a tweet as a prayer, message to refugees, or other information they learned with #sharethejourney in 140 characters or less (remember spaces count too!) Again, this can be a classroom bulletin board activity, or have the parish leader post the "tweets" during the year.
- It is also interesting to view the actual stream of tweets by searching #sharethejourney on Twitter by projecting it in class. This can open further discussions about the Pope's campaign. With older students, this would be an excellent way to introduce them to the larger world working together. If they have twitter accounts, ask them to follow the hashtag.
