Objectives

You are to produce a digital story and demonstrate your understanding of how to integrate digital storytelling into a lesson or some other unit of study.

Whatever program you are in and whatever discipline you are studying, math, science, social studies or language arts, your digital story will be an example of a digital story that could be produced by your students as a way for them to demonstrate their learning. The digital story can be part of a lesson or a unit of study that follows from the curriculum associated with the classroom where you are currently observing. In this way, a digital story can be a demonstration of learning, not unlike an essay or some other type of project, that students might produce. And the digital story that you will produce will be age appropriate, discipline specific, and designed for the students you are currently observing.

Expectations | Your digital story will be:

  • An example of a digital story that could be produced by your students as a way for them to demonstrate their learning.
  • Between ~2.5 and ~3.5 minutes. (Shorter videos struggle to make their point and longer videos are beyond the scope of this exploration).
  • Fiction or nonfiction.
  • Conform to the StoryCenter  approach to digital Storytelling
  • Consistent with the curriculum in the class where you are observing.
  • For Spring 2021, this can be an individual or small group project.
