Digital storytelling tools, apps, and strategies to promote learning, sharing, and communication!

Buy Now


Older students often enthusiastically embrace technology and express themselves through a variety of digital media, so why not encourage them to hone their writing skills and share their thoughts using digital storytelling and writing? This toolkit contains webinars that explore digital storytelling tools, apps and strategies that students can use to tell stories, demonstrate what they have learned, share their thoughts, and more! You will learn how to use Google docs, blogs, asynchronous discussions, online journaling, and more to teach digital writing and engage students’ higher order thinking skills. Learn how an interactive timeline can tell a story that promotes better organization, understanding, and comprehension; as well as how students’ stories and artwork can be shared in a published book. If you are using mobile technologies, discover apps and engaging iPad activities that enable students to weave together different media and express themselves creatively across the curriculum. You’ll also find out how students can use these mobile devices to capture their own images for presentations and digital storytelling projects.

I am willing to try anything that will motivate students to read.

These were wonderful! I did not watch the webinars specifically related to the iPad because we don't use them. I was struggling to find a way to adapt one of my favorite projects during this digital hybrid year and I now have so many great ideas! Thank you!!

The whole program is great! Though I haven't watched the ipad series because we don't use it in here, all the webinars are awesome! I agree that Shelly is one of the best presenters inside the community for all the resources she shares. Thanks :)

4.75 I’ve watched both the elementary and secondary toolkits. I feel like the elementary toolkit has more to offer, but with that said, the secondary toolkit does mention some great tools for older students and does contain a good deal of the same content. Overall, they’re both great!
