  • 1. Digital Storytelling
    The 20th Century in America
    By Dan Saska
  • 2. “storytelling is a natural form of communication, and it can be a powerful tool for human learning.” - Jonassen
  • 3. Overview: “The Product”
    Students will create a five minute digital story focusing on at least ten American events, which effectively encompass 20th century America and provide an overview of the events.
  • 4. Learner Goals
    To assess American history
    To determine any significant events from 1890-2001.
    To analyze the events
    To conclude why the events are significant
  • 5. Literature Review of Digital Storytelling
    Variety of sources
    All confirm that digital storytelling is a “powerful” tool for education and reflection
    Digital stories “tap into students’ existing visual, oral, print, textual, and technological literacies.”
  • 6. Mind Tool Overview
    Learners: 9th grade students, mixed ability
    Students will
    Get into groups of three to four
    Reflecting upon the entire year/come up with ten events that are most influential and significant to the “big picture” of history.
    Research these ten events in depth, finding at least one image and one primary source (speech, quote, newspaper quotation, legislation, etc.) that correspond to the event.
    Write a two-sentence explanation of why this event is important and what it changed.
    Use their research and choose a digital storytelling tool (Vuvox, Dipity, or Joggle).
    Create storyboards, and create the digital story.
  • 7. The Mind Tool’s Characteristics
    The students will be modeling experiences (stories)
    Digital storytelling will allow students to interact with experiences while engaging in problem solving, which is the essence of conceptual change.
    Since the students will be modeling experiences of Americans, they will be using hypermedia.
  • 8. Assessment
    Final product should address higher-level thinking (analyzing, synthesizing)
    All requirements (primary sources, explanation of event, etc.) must be met
    Use of a rubric
  • 9. Standards Met:
    Students analyze contributions of individuals, political groups, and events to history
    Creativity and Innovation standards
    Research and Information Fluency standards
  • 10. Rubric Used:
