Digital Storytelling: What it is… And… What it is NOT I was lucky to have shared my childhood bedroom for a few years with my grandmother, when she had come to live with us after an illness. At bedtime, she would tell me stories of her parents and three brothers and growing up in East Prussia, fleeing to the West after WW2 and the things that occupied her mind. I was hooked on storytelling. The fascination grew when technology became available and opened up possibilities that were just not possible before. I would give anything to have been able to record my grandmother’s stories and have shared them with my own children years later. Humans are natural storytellers.

So when I began teaching, it was only natural for me to include video production in my classes and embed video creating into my curriculum. When I later became a Library Media Specialist, I looked at some of the major curricular units across the school and tried to find ways to use video to make students a more active part of the learning process, while giving them a creative way to demonstrate their learning. Working closely with my fellow teachers, we’ve enhanced numerous lessons and projects using video production. Here is a selection of favorites that might inspire your own efforts: 8th Grade Science – MeiosisTraditionally 8th grade students learn how meiosis is responsible for the characteristics of an organism that are inherited, and are asked to demonstrate their understanding of this process.
