App Store Description

Kiwa Media and Alaska Join for First Worldwide QBook Slam!

15 high school students and 7 adult advisors from four school districts gathered in Anchorage to participate in the KIWA SLAM™ project. Students were tasked with creating an entire 20 page illustrated book in just 48 hours. With an overall theme of “We Are Alaska”, each district team worked collaboratively to create a storyline representative of their communities through telling a local story or myth.

Teams were allotted five pages to present their story in 100 words or less, illustrate each page, and record story narration. Finished files were sent electronically to New Zealand where Kiwa Digital developers constructed the book overnight. The next day, "We Are Alaska" was presented as part of Kiwa's founder Rhonda Kite's keynote address to the Association of Alaska School Boards annual conference.

The Association of Alaska School Boards' (AASB) Consortium for Digital Learning, in partnership with Kiwa Digital of New Zealand and Apple, Inc., sponsored the first ever "KIWA SLAM™" as part of AASB's annual conference November 1-4, 2012 in Anchorage.

The KIWA SLAM™ project offered students a unique opportunity to participate in the emerging field of digital publishing through the hands-on production of a digital book from start to finish. We are thankful to Rhonda Kite, Zohar Marshall, Jordan Koziol-Repia, Josh Preston and Bryan Field of Kiwa Digital and Pete Vraspir of Apple, Inc. for their initiation and support of this exciting project. Supporting adults also included:

Northwest Arctic School District
Jeri Eck - Art Teacher
Raymond Woods, Bicultural Coordinator
Kodiak Island Borough School District
Vickie Kelly, CIO
Bonnie Dillard - Art Teacher
Lower Kuskokwim School District
Vicki Nechodomu, Technology Specialist
Tommy Bayayok, Technology Specialist
Kashunamiut School District
Matt Good, Principal
Rebecca Nayamin, Cup’ik Instructor

We hope you enjoy We Are Alaska as much as we all enjoyed creating it!
