“My Story, My Goal” Is Quite Impressive

| 0 comments

My Story, My Goal is a very impressive multimedia presentation. Here is how they describe themselves:

Fourteen University of Miami multimedia graduate students teamed with students from seven Knight Center for International Media partner schools in Africa and Asia to tell stories that attempt to personalize the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Working with Tom Kennedy, Knight Center Professional-in-Residence, each team found personal local stories that shed light and insight on critical global issues, including poverty, maternal health, environmental sustainability, universal education, gender equality, HIV AIDS and children’s health.

Though the audio might be challenging for English Language Learners (too bad the videos don’t have closed-captioning), it’s really an extraordinary production. Viewers can also leave comments, which is a great writing opportunity for students.
