Five Easy Steps! Let’s Create a Video Using Photostory3
Make the curriculum come alive with project based learning using Photo Story 3, a multimedia presentation software! This presentation addresses what it means to teach and learn in the 21st century via Digital Storytelling. It is a hands-on demo of creating a digital story using photo story 3. It includes specific examples of student work and successful classroom activities done using Photo Story 3. Students creatively express themselves while demonstrating mastery of the standards. Educators at all levels can use Digital Storytelling in many ways, from introducing new material to helping students learn to conduct research, synthesize large amounts of content and gain expertise in the use of digital communication and authoring tools. It can also help students organize their ideas as they learn to create stories for an audience, and present their ideas and knowledge in an individual and meaningful way. Join us as we explore the art of Digital Storytelling.
