I teach my teachers a course on storytelling and part of it, I deal with Digital Story telling and especially getting their high school students to use their cameras, tech skills and tell their own stories. I have many examples on the video part of my site at www.ddd.batcave.net Stories are sssooooooo powerful and are in my opinion (and always will be) the nexus of teaching. Even science and biology are courses held together by this power.
I really encourage teachers to get your students to tell THEIR own stories. So empowering. I just came across another fine example and have entered it below. Such beautiful stories by these children and once they finish it, they have something to be proud of, a proud which represents their learning and motivates them. That's why we should keep portfolios for students and get them making books and webpages/blogs, to share themselves , proudly.........
