Digital Storytelling With Comics

Digital Storytelling With Comics | IT tools for reading comprehension | Scoop.it

On Monday I published a short guide to digital storytelling with comics. This evening I gave a free webinar presentation based on that free guide. More than 200 people registered for the webinar in less than 48 hours. If you wanted to join and missed it, the recording of the webinar, sponsored by Storyboard That, is now available here and as embedded below.

Excellent guide about how comics can be used to create short stories or to storyboard a larger project. Links to free versions of related software too - StoryboardThat.com; WeVideo.com (for turning comic strips into movies) and WidBook.com (for creating multimedia ebooks - and it's also a collaborative writing platform).

This is worth checking out. I am always searching for new ways to reach my students.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, January 31, 9:31 AM

This could be a very interesting program that could be used with students to review or retell what they have learned in a class.  We would love to teach this to your students and help them through their first project.  Any takers?

Good, but for teachers in New Zealand the curriculum and professional development still needs to be connecged to these resources. Teachers can do this, of course, but wouldn't it be nice if there were some resources available which make those connections?

But are these apps really any good for education?

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | IT tools for reading comprehension | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Half an Hour: A Few Words on ePortfolios

Half an Hour: A Few Words on ePortfolios | IT tools for reading comprehension | Scoop.it

On the one hand, the portfolio may focus predominately on learning and reflection. Such a portfolio may come to resemble a student's journal or sketchbook.  On the other hand, the portfolio may be used primarily for evaluation and assessment, becoming more a documentation of achievement that a personal workspace. As Barrett notes, the former model focuses on the ePortfolio as process, while the latter contemplates the ePortfolio as product.

Interesting post by Stephen Downes about the different functions of e-portfolios. Downes believes that in the future students will need to manage their online learning records and products, while linking to a range of services such as YouTube and Flickr. He links to an interesting project at University of Mary Washington which encourages students to create their own 'web presence' independently from any service providers. 

Luis Miguel Claudio's curator insight, October 30, 2013 8:29 AM

Reflexión de Stephen Downes sobre la importancia de los e-portfolios, entendido como proceso y como producto. Concluye con la idea que que en el futuro serán equivalentes a las actuales certificaciones.

Como siempre, muy interesante.

This is clearly defined as e-documentation of learning maintained within a e-portfolio.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | IT tools for reading comprehension | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.

Interesting article highlighting confusion between formal and informal writing when using digital tools. On a positive note, students benefit from being able to see each others' work and collaborate online.

Sarah Peterson's comment, October 1, 2013 9:27 AM
This article was very fascinating. It talked about the impact of technology on student writing. I thought this was interesting because there are so many ways now that students can write on the computer. For example our school now has 1:1 laptops so we use technology more often now. I thought it was interesting how they also talked about how the technology can create some bad writing habits though. This article was great and I would encourage students and teachers to read it.

An informative article on the positive and negative impact of digital tools on student writing. The entire report is downloadable in its pdf format from the website.

This is a great article regarding leadership in a networking setting. It gives a great insight in how to emerge as a leader, and highlights different strategies to increase your effectiveness when networking with different individuals.

 

It is a good example of transformational leadership, in which you focus not only on your own well-being and improvement, but the well-being of the people you are networking with as well.
