Special Workshop

In the summer of 2006, GSU-AAM Alumni gathered together to join in another "Digital Storytelling Workshop" facilitated by Dr. Sandi Estep, taught by Lucianne Sweder, and tech supported by Ryan Estep. The workshop opened with Lynne Clayton, a professional storyteller, relating the basis of digital historical narratives, a form of digital story telling, back to original personal storytelling. This workshop is a "means by which teachers enhance their knowledge, skills, attittudes, and beliefs necessary to create high levels of learning for students." Enjoy viewing these stories designed by our creative participants. You may use them in your classroom for learning expressions for your students. Many of our teachers will be having their students create their own "digital historical narratives" using primary sources from the Library of Congress (LOC).
