About the eBook

A must-read for incorporating digital literacy into your classroom!

As the saying goes, "If you want someone to remember something, tell them a story." But if you really want your students to remember what they learn, then let them create their own digital stories.

Digital storytelling empowers your students to be confident communicators and creators of media as they gain essential 21st-century literacy skills and reach deeper understandings in all areas of the curriculum. Aligned with refreshed ISTE and Common Core standards, this new edition of Digital Storytelling in the Classroom includes:

  • Practical techniques for combining storytelling with your curriculum content
  • Tips for exploring effective storytelling principles through emerging digital media as well as via traditional literacy skills in reading, writing, speaking, and art
  • Information on relevant copyright and fair use laws
  • Visual aids and video clips that illustrate best practices in multimedia composition

A world leader in digital storytelling and a lifelong digital humanist, author Jason Ohler opens the door to a new world of creative teaching and learning for you and your students.
