Take a moment to think about how you learned to write. What steps did you go through? What was your process? Most of us learned the same core set of skills on paper: organize, draft, edit, revise, turn in.
I vividly remember how I first learned to take notes. My sixth grade geography teacher lectured in outline style: "Roman Numeral one - China. A - Qin Dynasty. 1 - Rulers . . . " We wrote down precisely what he said, and to this day, I still take notes in outline form. However, consider Sunni Brown's TED Talk, "Doodlers Unite."

5 Fantastic Apps for Digital Storytelling on iPads This is a guest post from Samantha Morra of EdTechTeacher.org Computers, and the digital tools on those computers, brought video editing to the classroom years ago.

Through apps, iPad provides a variety of options for how to compose or combine those key elements to create an effective demonstration of learning. Digital storytelling is a powerful tool in the classroom.

How to Incorporate Video Into Your Haiku Decks Earlier this week I shared 76 examples of Haiku Deck being used in school and then I shared Ken Shelton's great presentation on the importance of visuals in storytelling. Yesterday, Ken told me about Haiku Deck's directions for incorporating video into your presentations. This is a topic that a few people have asked me about this week so I think it's worth noting that Haiku Deck has published directions for incorporating videos. While you cannot import videos directly into your presentations yet, Haiku Deck does suggest two ways that you can use video with your Haiku Deck presentations. The first method is to design your Haiku Deck presentation with a place holder for a video then export the presentation to Keynote or PPT and import your video into that file. In this regard you're using Haiku Deck as a design tool for a your presentations.
This is a great find. For those of you lucky enough to be a Mac school, I firmly believe the library needs to promote--prodigiously!--not just the teacher use of iBooks Author, but STUDENT-CREATED iBooks. I've blogged previously (ad nauseum?) about our iPad Trials (though, personally, I think it's more of an iBooks Author trial at this point, but it may be expanding). Basically, for this project, students are researching WW II, specifically some aspect of their home countries' involvement (we're an international school).
