  • Empowering Students to be Creators: Using Online Tools for Digital Storytelling in All Content Areas

    Although project-based learning continues to be a popular goal in classrooms, it can be difficult to implement for many content area teachers. Join Brandi Young, INFOhio Integration Librarian, and Emily Colpi, Librarian & Digital Learning Coach at Mariemont High School, for an inside look into:

    • Finding new ways to empower your students to be creators of their own learning by integrating digital storytelling into standards-aligned projects.
    • Encouraging your students to gain knowledge and skills, while helping them learn to investigate authentic questions and problems for real-world learning.
    • Exploring INFOhio's new resource, Book Nook: Gallery of Student Creations, for student examples and free resources on creating book trailers and other digital storytelling projects.
