The CTE Digital Storytelling Program (DST) - Spring 2013
The purpose of the CTE Digital Storytelling Program is to provide faculty participants with the opportunity to develop the practices and skills to create digital stories, and to explore how digital storytelling might be employed in their own instructional contexts. Through a series of hands-on sessions throughout the Spring of 2013, participants will be introduced to processes and tools that support digital storytelling. Particular emphasis will be placed on the importance of concise script writing, narration, and the selection of images and sounds as a means to convey story, and the use of storyboarding as a process for structuring the development of digital stories. In addition, participants will learn to use freely available software tools for editing digital video (Microsoft Movie Maker for the PC and iMovie for the Mac) and audio (Audacity) to support the creation of digital stories.
The experience gained in the Digital Storytelling Program is intended to serve as a foundation by which faculty participants can determine how they and their students might be able to use digital storytelling to support learning in educational settings. In addition to creating their own digital story, faculty who complete this program will be able to:
- Use the practices and skills of digital storytelling to create new works
- Describe the value of digital storytelling in supporting reflection and learning
- Develop plans for using digital story telling in a variety of instructional contexts
- Provide structural and technical guidance to support student creation of digital stories
