Silvia Tolisano is an amazing educator and teacher-leader. She shared her presentation for the 2009 K-12 Online Conference, “Around the World with Skype,” in both English and Spanish versions. This is one of the best practical video tutorials for using Skype instructionally with students I have ever seen.
Sylvia’s “supporting documents” post for this presentation is thorough and also fantastic. If you are or are considering using Skype or other videoconferencing tools with students in your classroom, don’t miss Sylvia’s outstanding presentation and resource list. The preso is just over 20 minutes long.
Tonight, thanks to Richard Byrne, I learned Sylvia has also published a book on digital storytelling: “How-To-Guide: Digital Storytelling – Tools for Educators.” Sylvia has made this available as a free eBook, or a paperback version via Lulu for $8.50 US. I’m eager to read it both for our Storychasers nonprofit as well as our Celebrate Oklahoma Voices digital storytelling project.
Way to go Sylvia! You rock.
