Today’s K-12 digital storytelling encompasses a range of tools, formats, and contexts for learning. At one time, digital storytelling was seen mostly as montages of images and videos set to music and narration. Although today’s classroom and school library applications still include this form, students, teachers, and school librarians can now use an array of approaches to tell digital stories, including tweets, mini-videos, single-image stories, and “Draw My Life” whiteboard narratives. Through storytelling contexts from science content to poetry and self-reflection, digital storytelling fosters creativity, collaboration, digital literacy, and critical thinking. This form of content creation aligns with a range of cross-curricular learning objectives and school library standards.
In this webinar, Dr. Rebecca J. Morris will share apps and lesson ideas for integrating digital storytelling into curriculum, with a focus on science topics. Assessment of student learning and practical strategies for facilitating digital storytelling will also be discussed.
Webinar bonus! A door prize will be given away during this live, interactive event.
You will have a chance to ask Dr. Morris questions after her presentation. Librarians and educators are invited to join this live, interactive session to learn how to integrate science with storytelling.
