Digital Storytelling (Ms. Gottlieb)- In this elective we will use technology to tell our stories, which may be creative fiction or non-fiction. The University of Houston’s Department of Education describes digital storytelling as “the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories…. in general, digital documentaries, computer-based narratives, digital essays, electronic memoirs, interactive storytelling… revolv[ing] around the idea of combining the art of telling stories with a variety of multimedia, including graphics, audio, video, and Web publishing.”
Students will create several small projects and one larger capstone project on a topic of their choice that is meaningful to them. Much of the preparation and writing will take place during class time, but some writing and preparation may need to take place at home.
