Week 5 Tasks


Task 1, Days 1-2: Reflection

  • What were your favorite digital storytelling tools/apps and why?
  • Do you believe mobile digital storytelling is useful in the classroom? Why? Why not?
  • What digital storytelling presentations from other participants impressed you? Why?

Task 2, Days 1-3: Pick a Sandbox Tool and Create a Story


Explore the various storytelling tools in our sandbox. Please use one of these tools to tell us a story about a person you admire. When you are finished playing with one of the tools, post a reflection of your experience in the DigiKids EVO Edmodo Group and upload your story to the Posterous group. Comment on other participants' stories. 


Step 1. Tag and add a Title to your Posterous post ((tag: Wk5, Hero Story))!

You can add a Title and tags to your hero/person you admire post by including these in the Subject Line of your email. Your Title should be Your Name's Hero story. To add tags through email, add tags in the subject of your email using the syntax ((tag: Wk5, Hero Story)). For more information on how this looks, please click here


Step 2. Be Creative

You have a lot of freedom on how you would like to present the activity so be imaginative and creative. We are looking forward to seeing your stories! 


Step 3. Connect by Commenting

Before the end of this week try to comment on at least 2 other posts. 



Task 3, Days 3-4: Evaluate the Session by Filling Out This Evaluation Form


Please let us know about your experience taking this course by filling out this evaluation form! We appreciate it!



Task 4, Day 6: Attend our Webinar


We will be hosting a free webinar where you can showcase your stories, ask questions, and reflect on the sessions. If you cannot attend the webinar, we will be posting the recording. The recordings are shared in our archives, in case you can't attend. We will be using the Learning Times Elluminate Room. Your computer may take a few minutes to download the software and you will need to allow it to run. 


If you've never attended a session in Elluminate, please do this tech check!


Webinar 1

Sunday, February 17th at 16:00 GMT (17:00 Barcelona, 18:00 Istanbul/Cairo, 21:00 Bangkok/Jakarta, 12:00 Beijing, 01:00 Tokyo Monday, 03:00 Melbourne Monday)

(What time is this for you?)


If you have never used Elluminate before, you will need to join and create an account and download a program before you can join the session (all free), so be sure to allow yourself enough time (or take care of the set up prior to Saturday). We'll have moderators on Skype to help.
