Abstract

This session examines an online learning module designed to teach preservice teachers about digital storytelling through the production of their own original videos. In the module, students learn about digital storytelling through an inquiry exploration of information graphics, an analysis of example student-produced digital stories, and by making their own digital storytelling videos using their smart phones with the simple free video software, WeVideo. We discuss design considerations and challenges, in addition to presenting evidence regarding the experiences of students who completed the learning module (n = 24). We consider the impact of giving preservice teachers experience with digital storytelling production to foster their own ability to create video clips for teaching, as well as their ability to guide their future students in producing videos for project-based learning experiences.
