From Discovery Educator Jeff Reed:
The second graders of East Pike Elementary School in Indiana, Pennsylvania created their own digital story titled And to Think That I Saw it Indiana, PA. After reading And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street written by Dr. Seuss, students brainstormed highlights that one might see while in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Each child wrote the text for a special place of their choice. The text and a picture that they photographed themselves were inserted into a Power Point slide. Finally, each student was recorded reading their own text and the recordings were added to the appropriate page. The final product was a digital book highlighting their community that could be shared and enjoyed for years to come.
I would enjoy hearing how others have integrated technology to help celebrate this holiday or other ideas for digital storytelling.
