As human beings, we are hardwired for storytelling. The motto of the Center for Digital Storytelling is "Listen deeply. Tell stories." Digital storytelling projects can provide ideal opportunities for students to acquire and demonstrate the literacy skills required to thrive in the 21st Century, as well as SHOW their mastery of traditional curriculum content. We will explore a variety of web-based and client-based digital storytelling tools, as well as frameworks for facilitating student-created digital stories.
