INTO THE CURRICULUM

DIGITAL STORYTELLING: WE HAVE THE RESOURCES

Digital storytelling is the practice of combining narrative with digital content, including images, sound, and video, to create a short movie. Digital stories can be instructional, persuasive, historical, or reflective. Some learning theorists believe that as a pedagogical technique, storytelling can be effectively applied to nearly any subject. Constructing a narrative and communicating it effectively require the storyteller to think carefully about the topic and consider the audience’s perspective. Below is a video created by one of Ms. Whitmer’s Physical Education students. Come on teachers, if P.E. can integrate video storytelling into their curriculum, what are you waiting for? See Dr. Stahr for help in creating a project for your students. Click here for the lesson plan for this project.
