In May 2019, 63 sixth- and seventh-grade students participated in a three-week digital storytelling project with Boston College’s Lynch School of Education and Human Development. Four of the Loyola Academy students presented their video projects during Saint Columbkille’s annual art show night. The project was led by Lynch School of Education and Human Development Associate Professor Deoksoon Kim, along with 12 BC students.

“The [STCPS] teachers and I have tried to help students use digital storytelling not only to learn subject matter but also to help them develop a sense of meaning and purpose, together with a commitment to the larger society,” said Kim.

The project was highlighted in Boston College’s Chronicle newspaper and on the university’s website over the summer.
