I’ve posted some new thoughts on the TechLearning blog related to meaningful professional development for teachers, and how school district leaders can help empower students by granting them access to digital technologies as well as inviting them to share their voices on the global stage via digital storytelling. My top recommendationsare :
- Digital Storytelling with VoiceThread
- Student Digital Storytelling and Media Festivals
- Equip and empower a cadre of learning leaders
Check out the full blog post for more elaboration on those themes! As always, your feedback is welcome! 🙂
