Perspectives and Experiences of Digital Storytelling
Here is a list of the BIG IDEAS covered in my vlog:
- What role does digital storytelling have in our math and science curriculum and course work?
- Does the type of digital storytelling tool matter?
- Does this time distract from other learning, or IS THIS the learning?
- What does the public contract say?
- How can I find a way to incorporate this?

“If you can’t explain it you don’t understand it.” Herein lies the purpose for using digital tools for storytelling. Communicating ideas and the intention for communication are the keys. I don’t think you need to spend weeks teaching the tech. Consider what your goals are for the learner (academic) and choose the best tool for the job. Focus on the curriculum, use the digital tool to enhance and communicate the learning.
Thanks for this example (screencastomatic) of digital storytelling!!

Digital skill building should start from Kindergarten and continue to compound so no one in high school has to spend two weeks teaching how to podcast.

I totally agree about students going to the tech they know. I think you would need to mandate that they try some new apps/programs or they will go to what they know.
