Target Audience(s): K-5 Teachers
Short Session Description (one line): Connecting, sharing, collaborating using technology to create stories.
Long Description: Storytelling is a natural way of sharing and communicating with the world. Every culture creates and shares stories. Stories are meaningful ways to communicate. While the storytelling has remained an important part of our lives, the way in which we use web 2.0 tools to enhance and share our stories has changed immensely. In this session, we will discuss how and share how these tools enhance communication, literacy and sharing of stories in our world.
Using PuppetPals on the iPad is one (of many) such tools that is easy to use with younger learners. Students can create any story they please in minutes. Learners can create an actor from a photo use any photo they wish as a background or backdrop for a story.
The point of this session is NOT about the tool, but a discussion about how we learners can share their stories with others in the world. Participants are welcome to share their own experiences on how they promote digital storytelling in their classrooms.
