  • Digital Storytelling

    1. 1. Digital Storytelling Students as Directors of Learning Jennifer Carrier Dorman Central Bucks School District
    2. 2. Many educators believe in the ‘exceptionality’ of computers, viewing them as instructional talismans that can do for student learning what other reforms cannot. “ Tools for the Mind” – Mary Burns
    3. 3. Technology & Student Learning <ul><li>This has resulted in the narrow focus on technology at the expense of the more important pillars of learning . . . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>cognition, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>instruction, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>assessment, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and curriculum. </li></ul></ul>
    4. 4. We are no longer teaching if what we teach is more important than who we teach or how we teach. (Carol Ann Tomlinson 2003)
    5. 5. What is digital storytelling?
    6. 7. What is digital storytelling? <ul><li>Digital storytelling is the process of writing about a story, and adding the multimedia elements of voice, imagery, and music to create a visual story. </li></ul>
    7. 8. What do students learn? <ul><li>The process of digital storytelling provides a high-quality learning experience because the learning experience honors the writing process first. </li></ul><ul><li>The inclusion of the technology into the process represents a “value-added” approach where the inclusion of the technology extends the learning experience beyond what could be accomplished without technology. </li></ul>
    8. 9. Digital Storytelling . . . <ul><li>develops visual and multimedia literacy in students. </li></ul><ul><li>addresses the development of the interpretation of digital media and the application of that interpretation to a personal message or story. </li></ul>
    9. 10. Digital Storytelling . . . <ul><li>provides students with a competitive and compelling voice by enlarging the boundaries of who students can communicate with and by increasing the depth and power of that communication. </li></ul>
    10. 11. Digital Storytelling . . . <ul><li>permits students to recapture creativity, develop it and intensify it, apply it, extend it… </li></ul><ul><li>helps students write more effectively by permitting the visualization of the writing, resulting in an additional level of perception that extends the writing process to a place seldom reached. </li></ul>
    11. 12. Digital Storytelling . . . <ul><li>provides an authentic personal learning experience- as such; student investment is greatly increased resulting in greatly improved motivation and end product. </li></ul>
    12. 13. Digital Storytelling . . . <ul><li>teaches elements of technology and information literacy-students use many different computer applications and must be conversant about locating and managing visuals and video, as well as being able to do so in the context of copyright and fair use. </li></ul>
    13. 14. Why implement a digital storytelling program?
    14. 15. Differentiating Instruction <ul><li>Digital documentaries and digital storytelling tap into student interests and specific learning profile and allow teachers to customize content, process, & product according to students' readiness with background information and technological proficiencies. </li></ul>
    15. 16. I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. - Confucius
    16. 17. Tell me and I forget. Teach me and remember. Involve me and I learn. - Benjamin Franklin
    17. 18. Enduring Understanding <ul><li>We learn. . . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>10% of what we READ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>20% of what we HEAR </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>30% of what we SEE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>40% of what we both SEE and HEAR </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>70% of what is DISCUSSED with others </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>80% of what we EXPERIENCE personally </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>95% of what we TEACH someone else </li></ul></ul><ul><li>--William Glasser </li></ul>
    18. 19. Why Digi Docs? <ul><li>One of the ways to move from data to understanding is to tell the story and make the relevant connections </li></ul><ul><li>Students sew the information together in an organized way that forces students to think about the entire body of information </li></ul>
    19. 20. Higher-Order Applications <ul><li>Digital video editing programs are higher-order applications </li></ul><ul><li>The nature of digital videos overcomes the limitations of more static demonstration software that can be episodic and disjointed </li></ul>
    20. 21. According to Bernajean Porter <ul><li>Author of DigiTales: The Art of Telling Digital Stories </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A documentary uses an abundant amount of primary sources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple points of view are presented </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The students make a personal connection and draw from a wider, global view </li></ul></ul>
