How to Use Digital Storytelling in Your Classroom - Article This how-to article accompanies the feature "Film School: Making Movies From Storyboard to Screen." Storytelling is a vital skill with seemingly unlimited applications. Done well, it can have a magical effect -- moving, enlightening, or entertaining audiences of any size. We tell stories to woo lovers, calm children, or reassure ourselves.

In today's digitized world, visual storytelling is a favorite classroom tool, and the affordability and accessibility of technology such as iMovie provides opportunities not imagined twenty years ago. 1. Think of movies you adore, movies you could watch again and again. 2. Though students need some knowledge of how to use equipment, teaching about technology should never be the focus of the curriculum. 3. Don't be intimidated if your students learn faster than you do.
