Global Voices: Digital Storytelling

Student Photography

The California International Studies Project Presents...

Storytelling is an honored practice in cultures worldwide, and a skill that opens doors to self-awareness, compassion and curiosity. In the classroom, studies of story and the development of storytelling techniques often focus on oral tradition and writing. K-12 educators will review, identify, and evaluate existing resources to align with their grade level standards and Common Core expectations. This workshop guides K-12 educators through the study of digital storytelling and skill development using photography.

  • Develop inquiry-based critical thinking skills
  • Learn how to use digital storytelling resources to engage your students in project based learning (PBL)
  • Align global competencies to Common Core and standards-based instruction
  • First of a three-part workshop (Winter and Spring workshop dates- TBD)

There is no cost for the workshops, which are sponsored by CISP, Global Oneness and ISTEP.
