Buy Now


While most elementary students enjoy listening to stories, digital storytelling goes a step further and provides a great way to promote creativity, innovation, and literacy in children as they create their own stories. This toolkit contains webinars that discuss digital storytelling tools, apps, and strategies to help even beginning writers share and publish their thoughts and ideas, while developing creativity and organization. You will learn how to use these tools to help student writers brainstorm, draft, compose, and publish their writing. Discover how your students can create digital works that include artwork, movies, pictures, and more. Learn how an interactive timeline can tell a story that promotes better understanding and comprehension, and find out how to create a “choose your own adventure” story with Google forms. Hear how your students can express themselves with talking pictures, as well as how their stories and artwork can come to life in a published book. If you are using mobile technologies, discover storytelling apps and examples of how to use iPads and other mobile devices to create and share digital stories, while enhancing communication and collaboration skills.

Thank you! I am having trouble receiving credit for completing a couple of the video’s: Inspire Creativity and Presentation Skills with a New Kind of Puppet Show, and Using Digital Storytelling on the iPad to Foster Key Skills. Thanks for any help you can give. Content is always amazing!
Thank you!
The information was very good. The video did not work when using this from the catalog.

Though I have much of the site to explore, I predict that this toolbox unit will more than likely be my favorite. It does a great job of giving so many examples, as well as walking through many of the perks and challenges for those examples. Given that a large percentage of learners are visual learners and/or visual learners to an extent, I feel as those the examples given will be highly useful across many platforms.
