We often think the more complex a solution is the greater its impact, but many times it is the simpler concepts that are truly innovative and more likely to have greater value. Stories connect students to subject matter much more than information alone. Digital Storytelling is a simple solution that helps students learn more standards-based concepts and skills than many other activities. Because it is hands-on, creative and project-oriented, students retain more of what they are learning. In this workshop, we will review the concept of Stories, Digital Storytelling and How to Tell a Better Story. We will touch on how it relates to 21st century Skills, the Common Core and other standards at all grade levels.

Together as a group, we will create a digital story using 30hands Storyteller for iPad. We will use images, photos, drawings, a video clip, and a touch of Stop Motion video to bring our story to life. For those who bring an iPad and want to create on their own, you can break off individually or in small groups to create a competing story.
