Voices From The Land
Fifth and sixth grade students have created digital stories to share their place-based examination of climate change in Oregon, Alaska and Hawaii. Students in each state worked with teaching artists and their classroom teachers to study climate science, write their story, design storyboards, paint and utilize the iStopmotion application on the iPad to create animation films. Once the films were completed, the students shared them with one another and then connected via Skype to learn more about one another and how climate change is affecting their land, their communities and their cultural traditions. Filmmakers interviewed scientists, teachers, and students in each location to create an interview based, short documentary of each project.
The American College of Lifestyle Medicine was fortunate to recently sit down with executives of Blue Shield of California to explore the use of lifestyle medicine in their programs and with their employees. This new video is the latest installment in the Lifestyle Medicine Story Project, which captures the application of lifestyle medicine in the workplace, by physicians and with patients.
