Digital Storytelling with Dr Jason Ohler

ohlerDr Jason Ohler, author of Digital Storytelling in the Classroom and Digital Community, Digital Citizen,visited ASIJ November 14-16 to work with teachers and students. Dr Ohler emphasized the message that the introduction of new technologies doesn’t mean less focus on the foundation of what we teach, but allows students to present their learning in an increased number of ways. For example, creating a video to illustrate a short story to show off creative writing or coding a 3D example of a math problem. Dr Ohler also worked hands-on with students in the middle and high school on ways to creatively present their learning.
