Here are the notes from this presentation:
What?
It's the process of writing about a story, adding multimedia elements of voice, imagery and music, to create a visual story.
Finally we get to tell our story in our own words

Why?
The process of digital storytelling permits students to recapture creativity, develop it, intensify it, apply it, extend it .... David Jakes
The process of digital storytelling provides a high-quality learning experience because the learning experience honours the writing process first ....... Jennifer Dorman
  • Appealing to students
  • Active not Passive Process
  • Atmosphere of excited learning
  • Gives writing new purpose
  • Weaves in all subjct disciplines
  • Visual and auditory learners
How?

(from//Jennifer New//)
Learn from what you watch
See technology as a storytelling tool, not as a teaching goal
Allow your students to push you (and lead you)
Learn by trial and error
Give your students freedom, but hold them accountable
Consider yourself the executive producer
Don't forget to celebrate your students' work
