This podcast is a recording of my keynote address for the 2009 PodStock conference, held in Wichita, Kansas, on May 1-2, 2009. This part 1 of a 2 part series on Storychasing: Empowering Students as Digital Witnesses. Part 2 will be presented online this weekend on Saturday, May 23, 2009, at 1900 GMT (2 pm CST) as a keynote for the Webheads in Action Convergence 2009 Conference. Please join us for part 2! (It will also be recorded and shared here afterwards.) The official conference program description for this sesson was/is: Just as a stormchaser uses available technologies, knowledge and skills to pursue and document an impending thunderstorm, storychasers use their tools and abilities to document stories of local, regional, national or international interest. In our classrooms and after-school programs, as educators we can empower learners of all ages to become digital witnesses and responsible citizen journalists as storychasers. Whether on a school field trip, conducting research for a class project or school journalism assignment, or interviewing local residents to share about their lives and experiences, storychasers can and are utilizing a rich array of new media tools to create, communicate, and collaborate. Come learn how to join the storychaser’s communication revolution, and catalyze the development of a diverse array of 21st century as well as traditional literacy skills with students in your local community who can become empowered storychasers!
