Social media has become a hot phrase in education as schools and teachers work to incorporate it into their curriculum and pedagogy. Now it's all too easy to tell students to post a quick reading response on the class page.

Try something better. Try something more complex and more effective. Make them tell the story of their knowledge.

Your students deserve ownership of their learning, and you can give it to them. When they create a story from their knowledge it becomes theirs, and when they post in a public forum they own their ideas. Learn how this exciting pedagogy works by joining Generate Deeper Learning through Digital Storytelling, a Magna Online Seminar on Tuesday, December 4, at 1 p.m. CST.

Digital storytelling involves students in creating a video story that expresses their understanding. The stories can be shared on social media sites for review and feedback from others. This seminar uses examples to demonstrate the fundamental pedagogy of student storytelling and how it can be applied to different fields. Your presenter will show you the steps to develop a digital storytelling lesson plan and how to implement that plan when teaching students. The seminar covers how to assess the outcomes of student storytelling while highlighting the free tools available for publishing stories.
