Digital Story Telling with Voicethreads - 0 views

  • Digital Story Telling with Voicethreads
  • An idea in the form of a basic lesson plan.  Students take their story and publish it by creating a Voicethread.  After they have created a Voicethread they can receive feedback and comment on other projects.

    This is part of Kenzie Waller's Lesson Plan to use Voicethread for Digital Story Telling

    Digital Story Telling
    Kenzie Waller
    Problem or Need:
    Students need motivation and excitement to practice writing.
    Developing a technology rich way to practice writing will engage students. At the end of
    the process students will have a published piece of writing with feedback from other
    students and the teacher.
    A real-world performance:
    All students need to be able to communicate using proper
    English in the form of speaking and writing.
    An instructional objective:
    Develop a technology-rich writing lesson plan that align to state standards and
    benchmarks. Also, using a professional critique process of their own work and the work
    of others using a rubric and recording comments.

  • Digital storytelling enhances not only the students literacy development but also their social-emotional development.

      The more I saw about digital storytelling, the more I realized it's potential for building self esteem. There is no "wrong" answer here. Everyone can be successful.

      As I looked at countless resources for self esteem building activities, I realized that I was lacking a truly collaborative activity in my course. I thought that digital story telling would be a fun, stress-free way for the girls to work together and connect with each other.
  • is that with digital storytelling students may use a real and authentic voice. This is of course very empowering in terms of motivation.

      I love the idea of the girls being able to use their "voice" as soon as possible in my course. I want to use this activity in the first module as another
      "icebreaking" activity on top of my voicethread.

  • but their ability to tell their own story, students with learning difficulties tend to do well with digital storytelling projects.

      I also like that digital storytelling allows for girls of all ability levels to participate. I could really make it a fun activity with the emphasis on the story itself, not their writing abilities.
  • another benefit of digital storytelling, is that students, when given the choice, most often will choose to talk about something they are passionate about; thus creating engagement for the creator of the digital story

      I love that this activity will give students freedom and choice to add anything they want. We all know that giving students choice leads to them being for satisfied :-)
