Limited Capacity seats available

Memories built through storytelling & metaphor are easier to recall; memories are  even more sticky when you include an emotional component. How can we make learning sticky using powerful storytelling frameworks that tap into peoples' emotions? How do we involve all students in creating digital content that doesn't also create hours of content for teachers to assess? This interactive, hands-on workshop will engage all learners in Digital Storytelling activities you can use in your class tomorrow! Document student learning & foster reflective ways for students to share their learning grounded in strong formative assessment practices. 1st: we play! Then we'll discuss how to practically adapt these ideas & make them your own. We’ll learn how to exercise your students' & your own creativity muscles and share simple strategies for collecting & publishing student work.
You’ll need a mobile device and you'll want to know your username & password to install new apps.Your device has to be able to send email using the native email app it came with. Nice to have a laptop with you too.
