Abstract

As our classrooms continue to diversify, teachers need reflective tools to help navigate the current culture of standardization while still honoring the diversity of their students (Apple, 2001). Further complicating the role of teacher, 21st century learners require a new kind of literacy: digital literacy (Ungerer, 2016). Digital storytelling is one technology effective both as a reflective tool (Matias & Grosland, 2016) and as a form of digital communication in the classroom (Matthews, 2014). However, digital ways of knowing have not been widely taught in teacher education programs outside technology classes. In this paper I document the process of using digital storytelling in an undergraduate education class, analyze the result, and give recommendations for future implementation with the hope to encourage a broader population of the educational community to value technological products as a form of knowledge outside the technology classroom.
