CMS “Produces” New Classroom Content

February 2nd was a banner day in Charlotte NC. Not only did the groundhog predict an early spring, but teachers at the Charlotte Mecklenburg School District also predicted that their students would really enjoy the new instructional strategy they just learned about. “Digital Storytelling” is the use of media to express an idea or concept in a non-linguistic way. Teachers started their day learning about the importance of writing and story boarding. They then transformed their stories into movies using Photostory and Movie Maker. Across the district, many new “producers” were born! Bring on the Oscars!

Story boarding always comes first!
