We finished up another great Celebrate Oklahoma Voices 2 1/2 day workshop today, and twenty Oklahoma teachers have now been introduced to digital storytelling and submitted their digital stories to our growing archive in our COV Ning website. Because we had twenty participants for this session, which is twice the size we’ve normally had in the past, we divided into two groups at the end of the workshop for our “digital show and tell” sharing time. Several participants created digital stories which are tributes to members of their own family, and these were the most touching stories I was able to hear today. (I’ve just heard and seen 10 of the stories so far, I need to view the rest online on our Ning site. These are a few examples:
As I wrote last month in the post, “Why Celebrate Oklahoma Voices Matters,” this project is about MUCH more than just digital storytelling. There are few professional activities I find more rewarding than helping teachers learn how to become effective digital storytellers.
Besides Ning, the main other web 2.0 tools we shared with teachers was del.icio.us and the Flickr Creative Commons image search. All our links from our 2008 workshops are aggregated on http://del.icio.us/tag/cov08.
