Over the last decade, the need for a new dimension to the conventional learning areas and the pedagogy around teaching has become increasingly obvious. This dimension will have a forward focus on major issues such as sustainability, citizenship, enterprise and globalisation.
How to create a digital story
Use an animation from The Literacy Shed to inspire and discuss the idea of creating a digital story.
Use a range of mind-mapping tools to brainstorm ideas.
Use Google Slides to write the story and the Explore tool to add images or links.
- Reflect and edit
Use the spelling and grammar check under the Tools menu on Google Slides. Share your draft with a partner to check it and make suggestions using the comment function.
Show the class your digital story by casting it to the data projector or sharing it on a class website or blog. Share it with parents by sending them a link to the story.
