New: Digital Storytelling with Mobile Devices
(Two Graduate Credits Available)

Summer Price: $277 CSD member | $344 non-member

Do you have an iPad or Android tablet?  Are you wondering if creating a digital story is too difficult? Help your students create their own digital stories by experiencing the process yourself. This three-day workshop teaches the pre-production, production and post-production phases of digital storytelling. You will have an opportunity to use either iMovie for the iPad or various Android apps. The workshop is a cross between a writer's workshop and a movie-making symposium. Bring a story to share, or select from one of the stories provided. Walk away with your own 2-3 minute movie and lots of ideas about how to help students create one.

This is a BYOD workshop. Participants must have basic knowledge of the devices they bring, and should also bring necessary cords and the manual to their device(s).

Think Ahead to this Fall!

Cooperating School Districts will continue to offer it's technology integration academies and as well as start year-long book studies this autumn.
