Description: The ability to create narrated slideshows and screencasts and share them online should be a basic skill for digitally literate learners today. In this session we'll explore the reasons why "playing with media" (including narrated slideshows/screencasts) is essential for digital literacy development, and discuss why teachers as well as students should be able to create narrated slideshows specifically to teach, learn, and demonstrate content mastery. We'll view examples of narrated slideshows created by teachers as well as students, and learn about different tools we can use to create and publish these creations online. We'll discuss the "workflow" for students creating narrated slideshows as a class assignment, either at home or in class using a cart of laptop computers, iPads, or the school computer lab.
