Powerful Tools for Teaching and Learning

Powerful Tools for Teaching and Learning: Digital Storytelling introduces educators to digital storytelling and explores ways to use digital stories to enhance students’ learning experiences. The course is designed to be comprehensive yet fundamental. By comprehensive we mean that the course provides a solid foundation for all of the components of a digital story and illustrates these components with tutorials, example stories, and links to additional readings. The course also provides a hands-on opportunity for learners to create their own digital stories. The course is fundamental because it covers the basic process of creating a digital story starting with just a simple script and as little as one image. This course is intended for K-12 teachers in all disciplines, although it is open to anyone with an interest in digital storytelling. Course participants will use WeVideo (https://www.wevideo.com/), a free web-based video editing program, to create a digital story that could be shared both online and with students in the classroom. Teachers in the state of Texas may be eligible to receive Continuing Professional Education units if they complete the major requirements of the course.

What people are saying

digital story

Initially, I thought creating a digital story is not my cup of tea, but this course has changed my perception.

Thank you :) impressive presentation and content presented in a siple ma This is a good course to learn how to visually present content via a digital story.

Strongly recommended for teachers/trainers who want to learn how to write a digital story for their learners.

The beauty of this course is that it is highly practical - you move through and step by step you build your own digital story.

While it was developed for and presented to educators, the skills are applicable to individuals who want to improve their own digital storytelling.
