Digital storytelling can be used as an assessment at all levels to showcase student mastery of content for any subject area. This workshop will include the process of planning for a digital story and introduce online tools (for laptops, Chromebooks, and Windows tablets) and mobile apps (for iPads and Android tablets) to use in producing and creating the stories.  Participants will create different types of digital stories which include  a personal narrative, a story that informs/instructs, and a story that documents an event. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy and the SAMR model in relation to these types of assessments will also be discussed, as well as the standards alignments.  Participants should bring a laptop, Chromebook, Windows tablet computer, Android tablet, or iPad 2 or newer to the workshop.
