ACTFL 2018 in New Orleans was amazing! I loved attending presentations by so many great teachers! My colleague Rebecca Landor and I had a great time presenting our session Digital Storytelling Toolbox. Our presentation focused on how to incorporate technology into storytelling through the use of digital platforms such as Storybird, Flipgrid, Adobe Spark, and Storyboard That. Below is a pdf of our session in case you missed it!
Here are some ideas of how to use each of these platforms to enhance storytelling in your room...
Interactive video platform --I love Flipgrid because it lowers the affective filter and gives more reserved students an opportunity to share their ideas orally. Once you have a teacher account you can create a 'Grid' for each section of your class and post topics for students to create videos on. You can control how long the video must be and who can see/comment on each post.
