Digital Storytelling in the Classroom

The Importance of Digital Storytelling

 

Digital storytelling is going to transform education. Technology is the overarching tool that drives all industries and education is no exception.  Teachers and students have access to smartphones, computers and GoPro cameras in their school or classrooms.  Some schools are putting a device in every student’s hands.  

Let The Student's Teach and The Teacher Facilitate

I am going to start off by saying that I know enough about computers to get by, but I am far from an expert.  I have taught for twenty years and I remember getting my first access to the Internet in 2000.  The boundaries between education and technology are becoming blurred and there is one thing that seems to be stuck in the mud:computer education.  Yes, we let students USE computers but there is little to no teaching taking place on what is inside them.
