The National Parks: America's Best Idea: Place-Based Digital Storytelling Modules | PBS | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas |
Using themes woven into the film and highlighted in the lesson plans, these modules train teachers how to integrate new media, digital storytelling, and online mapping projects in their curriculum to engage students in authentic learning. The modules can be used separately or together, letting participants choose the appropriate level of engagement, given available skill level, time, and resources. The hands-on, project based educational materials offer a wonderful opportunity to explore place-based teaching and learning using "easy to integrate" new media tools and techniques.
