Generate Deeper Learning through Digital Storytelling

Teachers understand one concept as nobody else does—in order to teach others, you have to fully understand the material yourself.

Why not apply that concept to your students? Why not make them teach the material to their peers to ensure that they fully understand it? If your students must not only repeat the material but also build it into a story via social media so their peers can respond, they will take ownership of their knowledge in a way that traditional testing cannot inspire.

Find out how digital storytelling can unlock your students’ capabilities for demonstrating their knowledge. Order your copy of Generate Deeper Learning through Digital Storytelling and get innovative new ideas for teaching and assessment.

Digital storytelling involves students in creating a video story that expresses their understanding. The stories can be shared on social media sites for review and feedback from others.

This seminar uses examples to demonstrate the fundamental pedagogy of student storytelling and how it can be applied to different fields. Your presenter explains the steps to develop a digital storytelling lesson plan and how to implement that plan when teaching students. The seminar covers how to assess the outcomes of student storytelling while highlighting the free tools available for publishing stories.
