Digital Storytelling: Promoting Literacy through Technology

The Common Core Standards are bursting with requirements for teachers
to incorporate technology into their instruction—an overwhelming task
for some. Join us as we explore Digital Storytelling, one avenue to covering
our standards while inspiring student writers. We'll share research
supporting digital storytelling, examples of student work (from elementary
to high school), and review the standards that digital storytelling addresses.
