presenter will demonstrate online tools for students to build and share digital
stories with. Web 2.0 sites can take digital storytelling into new domains. Not
only can students share their stories with the world, but now they can work
collaboratively to build their productions. As kids are tuned into YouTube they
are intrigued with the power of video production. Educators can capitalize on
this interest by having students create their own digital stories. We will see
how free web sites such as Posterous, Whrrl and Animoto offer a plethora of
free tools for creating slide shows, video productions and other parts of the
media creation process. We will see demonstrations of how sites such as
TeacherTube and StoryCircles allow authors to get feedback on their productions
and even to let others add to the stories. We will also explore how digital
stories can be used in blogs and wikis.
