Featured image by Canva

In this class we will explore three different digital storytelling tools. Each could be used by teachers to share information with students. Or they could be used by students to share their thinking and creativity with an audience beyond the classroom.

Student will get a brief introduction to each app and spend some time exploring each. Then they will work in teams to brainstorm a ideas for using each app in both settings: used by teacher and used by student.

Then each group will create a Google Drawing to capture their ideas for using the app in what will be a total of six different uses. They will share their Drawings which will later become part of this post.
