Storytelling is an important part of learning, and today’s technology allows students and staff to tell their stories in powerful ways.
Students can use iMovie to tell stories using digital media including pictures, images, and music. This can improve their verbal fluency and their communicative skills. The teacher could provide a section of the text for the student(s) to act out; of which is then compiled in iMovie.
Digital Storytelling with iMovie links with the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) general capability, and also has strong correlations to The Australian Curriculum: Media Arts. Digital storytelling is also relevant to learning areas of the Australian Curriculum such as English, history and geography, which call for students to demonstrate their understanding of a topic using digital technology.
