Digital Storytelling in the Classroom

Screencapture, Digital Storytelling in the Classroom, January 25, 2010

In this video, Lynne Zalesak, an 8th-grade Houston social studies teacher, reflects on her use of digital tools in the classroom, in support of student-created digital storytelling. Zalesak worked with Photo Story 3, a free Windows application with which students can create documentary-style videos with narration.
