'Digital Storytelling' presentation at ECOO

It was a great opportunity to be able to present at ECOO 2012 - the conference that takes educators into the dreamy land of technology, surprising them with the applicability of those dreams in the classroom.

At the bottom of this post is the link to my presentation on Digital Storytelling. The discussion around the slides was related to how storytelling and technology are two of the things that our students are really good at. Combining the two gives rise to the powerful process of 'Digital Storytelling'. The fun part was sharing examples of students' digital work with other educators.

Presentation description:

Students are full of stories - some retold in their words and some brand new coming from their own lives or imagination. With the digital world upon us, it is not only fun to turn these stories into a reality but also very easy to showcase and broadcast them. Using some simple audio and video software available in all Ontario schools, learn how to make audio and visual digital stories that primary and junior students can create themselves to share with the world.
