Lisa Hartzell, Amber McKinney, and Sarah Loor's insight:

 

This is a great example of a public library offering community members the chance to become digital story creators.  We especially like the way they characterize digital stories:  "Digital Stories are slices of history – the people’s history – and your story will illuminate a piece of the larger story within which your story takes place."

How VoiceThread Can Help English Language Learners

How VoiceThread Can Help English Language Learners | Teaching Digital Storytelling to Youth Using VoiceThread | Scoop.it
Lisa Hartzell, Amber McKinney, and Sarah Loor's insight:

 

This is good information about how VoiceThread can help English Language Learners.  Instructor Bophany Huot writes "Students can practice speaking as many times as they like before sharing it with their teachers and classmates....For my students, the ability to do something over and over again and the ability to listen as many times as one wishes is priceless."

 

Since some of the youth we work with may be English Language Learners at various levels, this could be a great way for them to express themselves in a way different than they might typically get to do at school.

Camila Sofia's curator insight, September 30, 2016 5:47 PM
This digital storytelling workshop demonstrates that storytelling is a wonderful technique to be used in young learners' classes since children acquire new words and increase their verbal proficiency. On the other hand, storytelling helps students to develop an intercultural understanding in which they will be able to appreciate, to recpect, and to experience diverse cultures values and traditions. In addition, this technique encourages active participation, the use of imagination and creativity and helps learners to enhance listening skills.
