Student Storytellers--One School Librarian's Digital Journey
Smollar, Sally
Knowledge Quest, v44 n3 p36-45 Jan-Feb 2016
As an elementary school librarian, Sally Smollar has had access to the latest technologies since document scanners were considered cutting edge. Even then, allowing students to scan images to insert into their stories was a game changer. Since those days, Smollar writes that she has never stopped experimenting with various platforms and applications to let students express themselves. As with most experiments, sometimes what works with one group might flop with another, or the whole activity may just bomb completely! Here, Smollar provides some examples of lessons and activities related to digital story telling. All of these examples are tried and true, tested on real kids, and can be adapted to any topic or story idea. The common takeaway from each idea is that students will engage their imaginations when they can become publishers and not just consumers of stories.
