Digital storytelling activities for your class tomorrow! Document student learning & foster reflective ways for students to share their learning. 1st: we play! Then we'll discuss how to practically adapt these ideas & make them your own.

Participants will learn:

• how to exercise your students' & your own creativity muscles.
• how to make learning sticky using powerful storytelling frameworks that tap into peoples' emotions
• how to involve all students in creating digital content that doesn't also create hours of content for teachers to assess.
• simple strategies for collecting & publishing student work.
