Powerful Tools for Teaching and Learning: Digital Storytelling. About the Course Powerful Tools for Teaching and Learning: Digital Storytelling introduces educators to digital storytelling and explores ways to use digital stories to enhance students’ learning experience.

The course is designed to be comprehensive yet fundamental. By comprehensive we mean that the course provides a solid foundation to all of the components of a digital story and illustrates these components with tutorials, example stories and links to additional readings. The course also provides a hands-on opportunity for learners to create their own digital stories. The course is fundamental because it covers the basic process of creating a digital story starting with just a simple script and as little as one still image. This course is intended for K-12 teachers in all disciplines, although it is open to anyone with an interest in digital storytelling. Course Syllabus Over the course of eight weeks, we will cover the following topics: Recommended Background Suggested Readings. Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling.

A Novel Educational Digital Storytelling Tool Focusing on Students Misconceptions Panagiotis Psomosa, Maria Kordakib Year: This paper describes the design and implementation of a new educational digital storytelling tool for the design and creation of multimedia digital stories to support students in reflecting on and overcoming their learning difficulties. In fact, this new digital story tool can assist students in creating digital stories using the ‘Educational W’ (Ed-W) story grammar (Kordaki, 2013). The digital storytelling tool enables the learner to design the storyline for every step of the Ed-W story grammar separately, and to combine the multimedia files he has uploaded to his digital library. Then, the system automatically assembles all the parts to create a single concrete educational digital story.
