The FotoStory

The object of FotoSynthesis is to create a self-sustaining education program to connect middle school students in the DC area with middle schools students from around the world through a combination of social media and photography. Students will share photographs online to establish communications, practice a new art form, and learn the importance of social media. The curriculum will also include reflective writing prompts which will meet national 6th grade writing and reading standards. By combining education, photography, and social media, we seek to emphasize the equal worth of different cultures by highlighting similarities and fostering respect for differences.
