Stories on the Go: Digital Storytelling with Mobile Devices
Students enjoy listening to stories and creating their own stories. Storytelling encourages learners to use the knowledge they have learned and apply it to a context and setting in a creative way. Digital storytelling takes this learning to the next level. By sharing stories digitally, learners teach others about their culture, environment, or themselves. Mobile devices have several features that motivate young learners to create and share their stories digitally. In addition, they let students carry their stories with them and allow them to create stories whenever they are inspired. In this webinar, we will explain the various features and cover some free and very inexpensive applications that help learners create digital stories. We will also share examples of digital stories created with handheld devices.
