Digital Storytelling

From Images to Motion to Great Stories







How can adding stories to your in-class and online activities raise student interest? How can you help learners develop 21st century multiliteracy skills through active learning enhanced by those stories? 


In this five-week online workshop offered through the Electronic Village Online, participants will be introduced to various online tools and will learn how to effectively incorporate these resources into their teaching practices. They will explore how images, music, slideshows  can be used in educational settings for storytelling.  By the end of the workshop, participants will have the chance to develop a digital storytelling plan to promote students' creativity, engagement and learning by the incorporation of digital production into their lesson plans.


The action starts on Jan 11th, 2011.
