Digital Storytelling Mobile for Teaching & Learning

From: Center for Instructional Technology

You are invited to apply for the Center for Instructional Technology's Digital Storytelling Mobile for Teaching & Learning immersive program!

Digital storytelling involves combining a narrative with digital media that can include images, video, text, audio or music to present teaching and learning content. Based on written scripts of narration, text, interactive images and video in digital stories can produce audio and visual effects that are more engaging and informative to the viewer. As a pedagogical technique facilitated with computer-based technologies, digital storytelling has been used in higher education in many subject areas, such as science, social science, communication studies, art and health education. This immersive program will explore the theoretical and technological underpinnings necessary to implement digital stories as a teaching tool and to facilitate digital storytelling as assignments for students in courses. Participants will create their own digital story and a lesson plan for a digital storytelling assignment as part of participating in the program.

The immersive program will consist of 3 phases over the next 7 months:
Phase 1- Summer 2012 Components of digital storytelling mobile
Phase 2- Fall 2012 assignments and rubrics
Phase 3- January 2013 Showcase

Phase 1 will be held this summer: May 31 and June 7 from 8:30am to 11:30am in Carrier 37.
