October 2021 Agenda—Columbus, Indiana

Facilitating Technology Enriched Classrooms for 21st Century Learners.

Begin at 9:00am

Getting Connected

Digitally…Socially…Spiritually
Three — Two — One
Share 3 things we should know about you; 2 places you love to visit; 1 job you wish you had!
Let’s use a digital storytelling website to do this.  Go to Adobe Spark and create a video.  You can sign in with your Google account.   Here is my example.  When you’re finished post your link on this Google Doc.

Review

Let’s take some time to reflect on last month’s TEC21 Challenges and share experiences. Share a success, a challenge you experienced or a lesson learned.

Announcements

1. The next workshop date is scheduled for Thursday, November 11.

2. The Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio Districts in partnership with Lutheran Education Association are joining together for the Connections Conference at the Grande Wayne Convention Center in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, on November 22-23.

Goals

We look forward in Workshop #2 making connections to build a lifetime of encouragement and support for one another.

1. Explore digital storytelling tools and resources to use with your students.

2. Create a digital storytelling learning activity to use with your students.

3. Be a resource to another colleague by sharing with them a digital tool, a resource, a learning activity, or an assessment strategy you learned about at today’s workshop.

Digital Storytelling

Low-tech option: Paper Slide Storytelling

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.

Stop Motion Video

A stopmotion video is a series of still images strung together at a rapid rate resulting in an onscreen animation.  Below is an example of one a past student created using Stopmotion Studios.  It is a free app that simple to use.  The video below takes advantage of some of the paid add-on features.

Modified Stop Motion Video

Check out this modified stop motion video, The Black Death in 90 Seconds.  You can use Google Slides and Screencastify or an iPad screen recorder to create a video just like this.

Let’s Create One!
