Slides to support a workshop at the Building Learning Communities Conference in Boston, MA. 15 July 2015.
How can we make learning sticky using powerful storytelling frameworks that tap into peoples' emotions? How do we involve all students in creating digital content that doesn't also create hours of content for teachers to assess? This interactive session will showcase Digital Storytelling activities teachers can use in 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, and figure out what sort of infrastructure needs to be in place to support these kinds of powerful learning experiences. We’ll learn how to exercise your students' & your own creativity muscles and share simple strategies for collecting & publishing student work.
