Sharing Stories: Powerful Lessons in Digital Storytelling GAETC
“The truth is, we know so little about life, we don’t really know what the good news is and what the bad news is.” This season has been ripe with Kurt Vonnegut releases, from the highly anticipated collection of his letters to his first and last works introduced by his daughter, shedding new light on the beloved author both as a complex character and a masterful storyteller. All the recent excitement reminded me of an old favorite, in which Vonnegut maps out the shapes of stories, with equal parts irreverence and perceptive insight, along the “G-I axis” of Good Fortune and Ill Fortune and the “B-E axis” of Beginning and Entropy.

English Language Learners and the Power of Personal Stories We’ve asked Larry Ferlazzo, a prolific blogger and Twitter user who has written a recent book called “English Language Learners: Teaching Strategies That Work,” to do a guest post for us today.

StoryKeepers - Audio Media Sources Even though these resources are offered as starting places for finding best available music / sound with minimal expense - creating your own music / sound effects is the optimal strategy for ensuring copyright friendly products. However, IF you do select music / sounds from from the internet - check copyrights AND collect full citation of source. Use a citation program like BibME.org or . . . a word document. Either way taking note of the resource at the time you collect it will save stress and time later when giving credits to the music / sounds finally chosen for your work.

Storytelling continues to gain popularity as an educational activity. As it stimulates a deep thinking, creativity and basic literacies, it also enhances and enriches the learning experience for student voices. Storytelling is an art form that uses a story ARC regardless of digital tools used while modernizing the traditional oral storytelling. It is more than "tell about" or "explain something" - a rich, powerful storytelling unfolds a dilemma - a struggle and a resolution organized around a story point or lesson learned. The emotional journey very powerful way of communicating [supported by research] with our audiences be they peers and portraying to others who we are and what our own stories are. It also provides an opportunity to connect with a group by creating a shared experience.

Some rights reserved Over the past year here at Journalism.co.uk we have reported on a number of new tools and platforms which have been launched or updated, which offer journalists different ways of telling stories visually. Our news:rewired events have also highlighted a number of those tools, most recently in a dedicated session on visual storytelling at news:rewired - digital stories, which was held last Thursday (6 December). Here is a list of just 14 tools that journalists might find useful. Some launched this year, while others have been around for some time now but continue to be used by news outlets today.

Currently, I am moderating a free online course, Digital Storytelling for Young Learners, with a dream team of moderators who are phenomenal at working with young learners, Esra Girgin, Barbara Sakamoto, Özge Karaoglu, Jennifer Verschoor, David Dodgson, and Michelle Worgan. Over 250 participants have joined and have shared incredibly imaginative stories in our online class portfolio. One of the most surprising discoveries, though, was that 62% of the teachers who took our survey said they had never had their learners create digital stories. Our language learners have powerful stories to share and often share personal stories in blogs, Facebook, Youtube, or Twitter. Through digital storytelling we motivate our learners to apply, contextualize, visualize, and personalize the language they learn. There are 100s of free digital tools and websites to inspire your learners to create extremely imaginative stories and share them with a global audience.
