Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling
This website for teachers and students shows how multimedia can be integrated an educational activity such as digital storytelling. Originally begun by faculty members and graduate students in the Instructional Technology Program at the University of Houston College of Education, this website contains various external online resources (still images, audio files and video clips) that are examples of digital media projects. They can serve as a model for educators how they can utilize the power of accessible multimedia to engage students in today's K-12 and higher education classrooms.
This video library contains videos that summarise books, elaborate on the context of the story, and is aimed at teenagers to help them engage with books, and the book recap can act as a 'book trailer'.
Students are also invited to make their own book recap (helping them to prioritise their thoughts) and post them to the ClubRecap subsection. Another subsection is 'RecapResource', which features tips on reading, writing, and how students can make their own recap: dictionary of terms, how to write a paper and 'Lights Camera Recap'.
