Limited Capacity seats available

Within the last 10 years, digital cameras, editing software, authoring tools and electronic media have encouraged teachers to utilize many more approaches and tools than ever before to help students construct their own knowledge and ideas to present and share them more effectively. One of these powerful approaches to multimedia production is digital storytelling. This presentation will provide an overview of digital storytelling and its implication for teaching and learning. Characteristics of this technology will be discussed and demonstrated throughout the presentation. Participants will learn how to use digital storytelling from introducing new material to helping students learn to conduct research, synthesize large amounts of content and gain expertise in the use of digital communications and authoring tools. Integrating digital storytelling allow students to build meaning and understanding through visual storytelling, script writing, storyboarding, narration, audio and still images. Participants will come away with the knowledge of applying digital storytelling in educational contexts. Along with identifying what components are necessary to create a great digital story for the classroom and learn the different digital storytelling options, platforms, peripheral hardware, and functionality (Audacity, Photostory 3, iMovie, Bubble Share, PhotoBucket, and Movie Maker). Participants will gain knowledge in copyright laws and Creative Commons Network. They will become skilled in strategies for planning a digital storytelling project: writing a script, planning a storyboard, voice, narrative, special effects and transitions, images and audio.
