Why stories?
1 minute: list as many things as you can remember learning to do as a child

3 minutes: Select 1 and describe the story around that learning experience.

Share with the person next to you.
Digital storytelling starts with a narrative -- it might be a personal experience or the conclusions of a scientific investigation or the story of research findings in social studies. It is more than a report or a retelling -- it should include a unique perspective, reflection, or new insight.
Storytelling stimulates, educates and creates connections.

The process of creating stories promotes self understanding, concept understanding, information literacy, communication literacy, and interdisciplinary learning
