Service Learing in Action
Reel Youth's project at UNIS Hanoi involved students from Grade 4 through to Grade 9, as well as a group of 15 High School students. All students in these classes were empowered to create their own media (videos, films and digital stories) with the assistance and guidance of the Reel Youth consultants, Mark Vonesh and Erica Kohn. The focus of these creations was to promote positive social change around issues of cultural diversity.Our students were able to explore cultural diversity from a variety of perspectives and probe into questions of diversity, culture, service learning, responsible use of technology and global citizenship. This focus on cultural diversity linked to our multi-year UN theme, "Celebrating the Diversity of the World’s Cultures and the Links Uniting Them – Rapprochement of Cultures” .
