The Power of Story--Digital Style
Deneen Frazier Bowen 5000
For centuries people have been telling stories to educate the younger
generation about their world--historical stories, cultural stories,
personal stories. Today, students--digital natives--are educating the
older generation--digital immigrants--with their stories of growing up
in a digital world. What if you could help students claim their own
stories using digital tools? What if you could communicate with
students at a deeper level by supporting and listening to their
stories? These stories can help school communities connect in new ways
to solve the new challenges of the digital era. In her keynote, Deneen
presents three digital stories, two authored by students and one by a
teacher. In this session, she guides you through a deeper exploration
of the development, creation, and uses of digital stories to help
students express their ideas, dreams, and concerns.
