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.
