Cuentame un cuento

.. digitalplease! tell me a story....

Jane Challinor - Nottingham Trent University

what is digital storytelling?

I am not talking about fairytales

but a reflection on learning

it can be a combination of images, voice, words and music ..

.or something much simpler

and it lives on the web

why stories?

storytelling has been around ever since there were people

telling our story helps us to see things from a different perspective

to express emotion

to organize things in ways which make sense

so why digital?

its what students want 21st century skills sharing with the world

what are the benefits?

it gives a voice to those students who lack confidence in their writing

it encourages creativity.

..and digital skills

it allows students to practise speaking (in public)

its fun!

and the disadvantages?

it is challenging for students unfamiliar with technology

and also for teachersunfamiliar with technology!

you need to dedicate a lot of time toplanning classes, activities and assignments

..employ scaffolding to build confidence

give a lot of thought to suitablemarking schemes or rubrics

and think about issues arounddigital identity

how do you do it?
