Digital Storytelling with ELL

Digital Storytelling revolves around the idea of combining the longstanding art of telling stories with any of a variety of available multimedia tools, including graphics, audio, video animation, and Web publishing. Digital storytelling can introduce new material for student research, synthesize large amounts of content, and prepare students to use digital communication and authoring tools. This workshop provides practical ideas for equipping teachers and students with the “on and offline” tech tools needed for diverse teaching and learning styles. Participants will learn how to generate interest, attention and motivation for the “digital generation” of English learners in our classrooms. Explore how to capitalize on the creative talents of your own students as they begin to research and tell stories of their own. Learn to publish student work on the Internet for viewing and critiquing by others.
