Session 2: The Power of Digital Storytelling as an Emerging Strategy
Thursday, March 29th, 10:15-11:45am
Session Two: The Power of Digital Storytelling as an Emerging Strategy in Service Learning, presented by Kristin Norris and Libby Laux. Student presenter, Joseph Spaulding. Digital storytelling is a creative way to integrate technology and learning in any discipline. Although not a new teaching strategy, they are an effective means for facilitating reflection, documenting experiences, and illustrating student learning and therefore very applicable to service learning. In this session, participants will see how digital stories can yield meaningful products of student learning while also guiding students through a process that helps them articulate and demonstrate their civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions in a powerful way. Session participants will be challenged to think about how emerging technologies can assist students in presenting themselves to others as civic-minded professionals and how they can integrate this teaching strategy into their course or program.
