Digital storytelling

Year three students recently went on an excursion to the Brisbane Museum as part of consolidating their learning through a unit of work on Dinosaurs. Using technology to tell the story of the excursion would be an effective way to enable students to take ownership of the experience. Digital photographs were taken by staff and parents (with consideration of privacy requirements)and these photos have been printed on copy paper and hung around the room. To further take these photos and build a digital story around the excursion would be an authentic task, developing literacy skills and ICT skills along the way. I will definately be planning for using technology in this way in my own classroom in the future.
