A RAIL Outreach specialty is professional development for Digital Storytelling.
In this FUN training series, participants create digital stories to learn the art of digital storytelling to pass on to their students as a way of project based learning.
Digital stories can be created by students of all ages to strengthen content knowledge in English language arts, social studies, science, and even math. In its purest form, students can tell personal narratives from their own first person perspective or by taking on the persona of a person or concept they are studying (e.g., literary character, historical figure, animal, or shape).
Students can even create digital stories for the school library and/or reading competitions (e.g., book trailers and fan fiction).
