Introduction to Digital Storytelling
Wednesday, March 07, 2018 12:00:00 AM UTC - 01:30:00 AM UTC
Promote higher level thinking in every content area with Digital Storytelling. Start with this first of three sessions to build your understanding of digital storytelling foundations.
Enrich and improve student writing with digital storytelling - giving written stories voice, imagery, and power. Learn to promote higher level thinking while students develop creativity, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills to take narratives to the next level. In this workshop, we will begin by exploring ways to improve writing with story development steps and tools; discover tech tools for editing and sharing student drafts; and finally, discuss strategies for collaborative writing. This session is for teachers at ALL technology comfort levels.** OK2Ask are hands-on exploratory workshops, not sit & gets. We highly recommend that you attend using a computer with an updated browser (Chrome or Edge). Those attending on mobile devices may not be able to fully participate and therefore may not receive a certificate. You are welcome to join us on a mobile device, but this may jeopardize your ability to receive CEUs. As a result of this session teachers will: 1. Learn how digital storytelling can enrich narrative writing; 2. Discover ways to improve narrative writing with story development steps and tools; and 3. Explore a variety of web-based tools and resources to improve writing. Applicable ISTE Standards for Educators (2017)*: 1B; 4B; 5C * The text of these standards is copyrighted.
