Digital Storytelling and Curriculum

Making meaning today requires a narrative. PERIOD! Just ask any business, any university, any leader! With information as ubiquitous as it is now-- its what we do with it that will separate us from others.

Digital storytelling, in his opinion, is probably the coolest form of teaching. It's about idea generation, sharing, convincing others to participate, giving people a function and a purpose, and managing a process. It's about being aware of product and process goals, and knowing what is the best way to tell the story or parts of the story. In the hour, we will (un)cover the basics to remix your classroom into a studio!

Multi-Media in the Classroom

Using multimedia in the classroom means just that. Multi-media: multi forms of communication. Students and teachers today (not tomorrow) need options. They need to find the appropriate channels for the students. Some media may work better than others. We can now offer more individualized attention to our learners. As teachers, we, too, can the right media for us. The function of this 1 hour breakout session is talk about planning, managing a classroom with options. It may be ideal to offer a variety of options, pathways to our kids, but how do we manage it all, assess it, archive it? Its not easy, but we have tools now that can help us project manage the coolest classroom. This session opens the discussion to this new direction.
