2. Today’s agenda:
Make sure you are also logged into Google.
4. Then, let’s talk about how we have been over the past month!
Let’s mix business and pleasure by diving into our content today through our devotion. We will be making a digital story of the 23rd Psalm. On the slide show above, each one of you have been assigned one slide that correlates to one verse. This is your slide, make it your own with images, GIFS, texts, etc. as you depict the verse.
1. Upcoming events:
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:
3. Wow! Look at how many Lutheran school teachers are now a part of the TEC21 Educators community! Isn’t it awesome what technology can afford us to do? This is powerful and a game changer for Lutheran educators today. It’ll enable us to support one another in-between workshops this school year and for many years to come #TEC21lcms #LutheranSchoolsThrive #LuthEd
Any “How to” questions regarding the Google+ community? How do I add a picture to my profile? How do I link a web page when I post? How do I manage my notifications?
4. Let’s take some time to reflect on last month’s TEC21 Challenges and share experiences. What were some successes? Tell us about any challenges you faced?
Each month, we’re going to provide several relevant resources for you to digest in advance of our workshops as a means to get your creative juices flowing. 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!

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.
“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.
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.
