How to Create Simple Digital Stories

How to Create Simple Digital Stories | i KATHA- THE NEW AGE STORYTELLING | Scoop.it

This is a picture I took of Kareen's toolkit at home- it is used to mend, repair, fix and even facilitate easy and even better living here- for all of us.

As every house is better off with such a tool kit, any teacher today would be much better off and effective with a story kit....

Stories... typically help extend our notions of life and ourselves and extend our imaginations as well as give voice to our dreams and aspirations, besides having the very obvious entertainment value.

The world is multi dimensional now and our students learn better through a mix and match of lecture, pictures, videos and aren't we also better able to communicate what we have to say or teach- when we make use of these diverse platforms and tools. But to use them, first we should know HOW TO use them.......

Digital storytelling is one of the most powerful tools to speak our story or even to express what we feel on an issue. I was exposed to this greatly enabling tool first hand in The University of Maryland, USA. So before we begin, First we have to learn the how of it.

Thnx to @buffyjhamilton for scooping this. Good exploration of PLN as "technique" in technology and a way of complementing Sherry Turkle's concern: "If we don’t teach our children to be alone, they will know only how to be lonely.” (link to Turkle's op ed on NYT in blog).

Digital Native vs Digital Citizen? Examining a Dangerous Stereotype

Digital Native vs Digital Citizen? Examining a Dangerous Stereotype | i KATHA- THE NEW AGE STORYTELLING | Scoop.it

To add to the complexity, there are varying degrees of "using a computer." It's one thing to use a tablet computer and its apps to learn basic literacy skills; but learning to create, read critically, use online content responsibly and be a respectful digital citizen are not always skills that can be learned without the guidance of a teacher of some kind (notice I did not say "adult").

5th grade blogging

5th grade blogging | i KATHA- THE NEW AGE STORYTELLING | Scoop.it

by engaging with blogging commenters, sixteen racially diverse 5th-gradersfound a new audience for their writing. Learning about their audience helped improve the students’ writing and increased their sense of confidence. The researchers found that blogging connected classroom experiences with learning opportunities outside of the classroom. This blogging process de-emphasized strict writing conventions; thus, the children developed blog entries that were filled with expression, humor, and playfulness.
