On Thursday 28th September at 3:15pm we held a free SchoolNet webinar which was presented by Fiona Beal a teacher, writer and ICT trainer from Cape Town. The webinar was entitled ‘Digital storytelling as a means to encourage students to write'
Fiona says: 'The world is changing. The way we write is changing! This is where digital storytelling comes in. Digital storytelling is a great way to give your students a creative way to tell their stories, and to get them to see the stories all around them in everyday life. In this webinar we will look at an overview of digital storytelling including how the Internet is changing writing. We’ll look at some key resources as well as useful free storytelling tools that one can use. Lastly we’ll discuss some simple ways of introducing digital storytelling in your classroom as well as some more advanced methods of creating a digital story. Perhaps you can share an idea or two of how you use digital storytelling in the classroom or in your life, if you attend this webinar?'
