The Parable of the Good Samaritan Luke 10
25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” 27 And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” 28 And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.”
29 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 30 Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance apriest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him.35 And the next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” 37 He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”
Why does He do it with a story?
Why should our pastor do it with a story?
Pastor Yonker at NID…
Be still and know that you should shut up and dance, let me bless you with a breakfast, use clips from AGT….
What should we do with story?
What should we pray about today?
Announcements & Review

2. As a TEC21 Workshop Program participant, you should have received some information by now from Concordia University–Nebraska pertaining to college credit opportunities. We’re very thankful to be able to partner in ministry with CUNE in this way. Many teachers have been blessed through this arrangement over the years. It’s something definitely worth considering!
For those who do decide to pursue this, the facilitators will use the following rubric to assign a letter grade after the final workshop – EDUC 513 Course Rubric. Take a few minutes to review the grading criteria. We look at it this way in that it’s simply applying your TEC21 take-a-ways in your classroom with your students following the workshops each month and plugging into our online Google+ TEC21 Educators community throughout the school year–both of which you’re doing as a part of this program any way. So, it’s just an added bonus to reward you for your efforts!
Remember that TEC21 is considered a second semester class- EDUC 513. To receive college credit, apply online between December 1, 2017 – January 31, 2018.
Degree completion options:
- Option 1 – M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction
- Option 2 – M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology Leadership
- Option 3 – Instructional Technology Leadership Endorsement (Check with your respective state’s Board of Education to see whether they acknowledge this endorsement.)
Non-degree completion option:
- $80/credit hour
- 3 graduate level credits
- Application fee waived for non-degree option
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 and for years and years to come 🙂
Any “How to” and “Why” questions regarding the Google+ community? How and/or why do I add a picture to my profile? How and/or why do I link a web page when I post? What does the +1 button mean? What happens when I do this +Brent Dieckhoff? How does the poll feature work and why might I use it? How do I manage 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?
1. Discover the value of digital storytelling.
2. Explore digital storytelling tools and resources to use with your students.

“The question that must be asked every day is, ‘What is BEST for this learner?'” ~ George Couros

Common Core and the technology expectation
Tell me a story daddy,

Jokes, George and the cherry tree, Honest Abe,
Common Core requires that students create narratives: from kindergarten on….
Kids love to tell stories…. we have to cut them off in class… can I just tell you….

Andrew Stanton on Telling Stories:
1. Make me care
2. Make a promise that the story will lead to a worth while place.
3. Make the audience work for their meal.
4. Organize an absence of information
5. The Unifying theory of 2+2– That is, make them put it together.
6. The main character must have a spine– acknowledge what drive you.
7. Change is fundamental in story.
8. Drama is anticipation mingled with uncertainty.
9. Like your main character.
10. Story has a theme, a meaning.
11. can you invoke wonder?
12.Use what you know — capture truth from experience.
Every story needs to have a climax. The climax is a problem or challenge that needs to be solved or overcome. Everything in the story builds towards the climax.
What’s Your Hook?
Your story starts with a mystery or a question that needs to be answered (a “hook”) – relates to the problem or challenge but doesn’t spoil it by giving the answer. Make your audience want to keep watching to see what will happen next.
- Every story has a setting. Where does your story take place?
- Next, how did the challenge or problem begin? Provide some background info. Here is where you establish a need or a desire in your viewer to WANT to see this problem solved.
- What about your main character? Who are they? What events in their life helped prepare them to deal with this problem or challenge?
- What was your character’s plan to deal with the problem or challenge?
- What actually happened? What was the result? (Here is where you solve the mystery or answer the question)

- Other Graphic Organizers
A digital story has both visual and sound elements. A storyboard helps you put your story together. Here you break your story into chunks and decide what visual and sound elements you will use to tell your story.
Storyboards or story maps, but maybe a Story Table instead.
Can I just tell you….
Kids love to tell stories…. we have to cut them off in class… can I just tell you….Give them a device and have them save it for later
Bank it for later refinement….
It is still writing when they dictate it to a device and the device does the typing…
Bank that story: Let’s get them published!
How to write a paper:
1. Talk to the device, stop typing; speak the first draft.
2. read and edit the second draft.
3. have the device read it to you. Then listen to it again.
4. Now edit a third draft. Is it ready for prime time?
5. Don’t print it. Share it. Publish it.
Let Grandma print it and put the book on her shelf or refrigerator!
You try it now!
Use Voice typing for Google Docs
Notes app and microphone or Google Keep on iPad or iPhone or Android
Go to the Camera App
Quick time player, win8 camera app, movie maker, Screencastify!

Gathering Your Resources:
Once you have a storyboard, it’s time to start collecting visual and audio resources. The first, best option would be to create these yourself, but if you can’t there is a plethora of online resources.

Sharing! We are each other’s BEST resources 🙂
The TEC21 Facilitators read The Innovator’s Mindset by George Couros this summer. The book was thought-provoking and inspiring, so we’ve decided to include a few of his quotes to our agendas throughout this year as food for thought.
Used with permission by George Couros.
You can follow him on Twitter @gcouros.
1. Engage your students in a digital storytelling activity or project. Share your experience by posting for others to see!
2. Post a comment, link, or student work to the TEC21’s online Google+ community.
