Using Digital Story Projects to Help Students Improve in Reading and Writing

Reading Improvement Volume 51, Number 1, ISSN 0034-0510


Today's students live in a world that has been transformed by technology, and they are often referred to as "digital natives" because their exposure to digital resources begins at birth. The increased exposure to technology has changed the way students respond to instruction and has led to a new need for teachers to integrate digital resources in the curriculum. Unfortunately, some teachers do not use enough digital resources for students to derive the full benefits of technology. One easy way to avoid this problem is by assigning students projects requiring the creation of digital stories. This article discusses why it is important for teachers to use digital resources and how digital storytelling projects can be used to help students improve in reading and writing. Resources are included to help instructors implement digital storytelling projects, and the article discusses how to overcome common obstacles when using this teaching strategy.
