Ariana Amorim's curator insight, November 4, 2013 7:34 AM

From the article:

"Digital storytelling makes for engaging lessons that allow students to create and publish content rather than just passively consuming it. It empowers every student with the opportunity to develop his voice and personalize it through the use of media.

(...) You have a wide variety of options for applying digital storytelling to your curriculum."

Greg Alchin's curator insight, April 23, 2014 9:31 PM

It is always worthwhile having a consistent framework for making selections about apps. This is a  useful list of considerations. One I would add to it is "Does the app work with VoiceOver or other accessibility settings?

My personal list of app selection criteria are based upon the apps capacity to enable:

1. Content can be displayed flexibly

2. Personalised operation (works with accessibility settings)

3. Support for developing understanding

4. Easy recovery from mistakes

5. Capacity for collaboration
