I did enjoy hearing about the 3 strategies & tips for writing stories for digital story telling.
I'm presently teaching Prek- 8th grade general music. I am looking for some ideas to include in my general music classroom. Prior I taught Educational Technology for sixteen years. It was great to hear the basics of writing the story for digital story telling. I will use the three tips demonstrated in this video when assigning my students a Digital Story Project.
Nice work

As a prek special ed teacher I thought this training was going to focus on the teacher creating digital stories. It still offered valuable information for creating stories. Thanks!
Thank you for the ideas and strategies. I like that is it open-ended and students can work on their level.
