A Great Presentation On The Use of iPad for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great Presentation On The Use of iPad for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ELA Resources | Scoop.it

"The presentation below is created by Karen Bosh who is a K - 8 Technology Instructor. Karen provided some key ideas and app suggestions for teachers on how to use iPad for digital storytelling. Some of the apps she suggested are not free. She has also corroborated her ideas with a set of students  project examples involving the use of iPad for digital storytelling. The presentation is a little bit long ( contains 129 slides) but is really worth your time. Have a look and share with your colleagues."
