Digital Storytelling - Student Voice
Limited Capacity filling up

How can storytelling make a difference in the culture of your school? We were asked to get to know our students this year. A project run through the library had them tell a story about themselves. They could tell whatever story they wanted and use whatever tool to tell it with as long as it was a video. The stories were uploaded so that anyone in the school could access them, staff and students. In this session the process will be explained, some successes and failures shared and participants will be challenged to create a story about themselves to see how it all works!

Storytelling with Bloxels Builder - A Video Game Creation Tool
Limited Capacity full

With their limitless imagination, students are incredible storytellers. Whether it's done verbally or written on paper, their stories are a true expression of their creative process. In this session, I will show you how students, at any grade level, can now take their stories, or an event, and make them come to life in minutes. I will show you how to build, collaborate, and tell stories through a video game design tool called Bloxels. You will use the Bloxels app, a physical design board, & planning guide to plan and create a video game during our session. When you are done, you'll have an interactive video game that you designed and and can be played by anyone with a laptop or tablet device. Bloxels is a free app available on iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire
