There are lots of wonderful things happening in your school every week, but often those stories aren’t documented and shared with parents and other members of your community. Interactive websites and social media tools, which permit student-created content to be MODERATED by teachers before it’s published publicly, allows schools to create dynamic news websites where students “tell the stories of our community.” Come learn how you can get a Student Storychasers Club started which can provide opportunities for students to develop digital literacy skills alongside traditional literacy skills as school journalists. Come hear the story of how 4th and 5th grade students and teachers at Lakeview Elementary, in Yukon Public Schools, successfully started an after-school Storychasers Club in 2013. Students learned how to write and publish short news articles, record audio interviews, and create short “quick edit” videos using iPads. Learn how to replicate this successful program at your school! Access session resources on http://storychasers.org/clubs.
