2. Concordia University-Nebraska has a heart for TEC21’s mission which is to invest in the lives of teachers serving in the Lutheran schools. This is why they have partnered with us in support of our efforts. Together, we have developed a special arrangement where you may receive three graduate credits for your participation in The TEC21 Workshop Program at a cost of $80/credit hour. Some teachers have used these credits toward attaining an endorsement (option #1) or an M.Ed. (options #2, #3, and #4). Additionally, many teachers have simply used their TEC21 experience as a means to help them meet their state’s recertification requirements (option #5). Listed below are the options your graduate credits can be used for should you choose to take advantage of this opportunity:

      1. Instructional Technology Leadership Endorsement (15 credit hours/5 courses)
      2. M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction (36 credit hours/12 courses)
      3. M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction with ESL/ELL Emphasis (36 credit hours/12 courses)
      4. M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction with Instructional Technology Leadership (36 credit hours/12 courses)
      5. Non-degree completion option (for recertification purposes)
Important to note:
      • Online Application deadline is Friday, October 19, 2018.
      • Credits are valid for a period of seven years should you decide to apply them toward an endorsement or degree option at a later time.
      • Have questions? Email Jodi Groeteke at Jodi.Groeteke@CUNE.edu or call her at 402.643.7144. She is the Director of Graduate Enrollment and is very helpful!
      • Your workshop facilitator will use the following rubric to assign a letter at the end of the program: TEC21 Grading Rubric.

They’ll be included in the pre-workshop emails you receive the week prior to each session. Our intent is that they help you to grow as a life-long learner and lead to practical applications for your teaching ministry. Enjoy!

Digital Storytelling

Storytelling

Everyone has a story to tell and digital storytelling can enable the author in each to come out. By combining writing of good stories with digital tools students become authors with a global audience.

What is Digital Story Telling?

How is the story told?
  • movies
  • slides
  • music
What is it for?
  • instruction
  • student projects
  • reflection
  • assessment
  • fun!
Why digital?
  • sharable
  • no mess
  • won’t make it and trash it
  • teaches other skills
Literary Basis

“Digital storytelling has emerged as a fundamental, cross-curricular technique that provides structure for both sharing and understanding new information. It has become an essential way of providing information and enhancing education…by making abstract or conceptual content more understandable. In all disciplines, it offers more ways to engage students and enrich learning through the inclusion of digital media that represents, illustrates, and demonstrates. Digital storytelling brings together text, graphics, audio, and video around a chosen theme, often with a specific point of view. Bernard Robin observes that a digital story may be a personal tale, a depiction of a historical event, or simply a way to creatively impart information or provide instruction. In the classroom, they can also foster collaboration when students are able to work in groups, and enhance the student experience through a personal sense of accomplishment (Robin, 2006). The National Council of Teachers of English in 2003, challenged teachers to develop instructional strategies for students to master composing in nonprint media that could include any combination of visual art, motion (video and film), graphics, text, and sound—all of which are frequently written and read in nonlinear fashion (Porter, 2008, p. 11). Included was the process of digital storytelling, where information is conveyed in a way that is more engaging than plain text.”     Strategies for digital communication skills across disciplines: The importance of digital stories (Links to an external site.)

Common Core writing standards require writing and publishing using digital tools beginning already in Kindergarten and continuing through Grade 12.

With guidance and support from adults, explore and use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.8.6
Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and present the relationships between information and ideas efficiently as well as to interact and collaborate with others.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.11-12.6
Use technology, including the Internet, to produce, publish, and update individual or shared writing products in response to ongoing feedback, including new arguments or information.

Paper Slide

Paper Slide Videos are a quick way to do a one-take recording of students teaching information. Use your iPad or iPhone in video mode and slide the prepared papers in one at a time as you talk about each, telling the story of what you learned or wrote.
