About this podcast
Elementary Story Telling illustrates how video and audio tools are used to tell a story - a digital story. Curriculum topics chosen by the teacher vary from class field trips to the reenactment of historical or current events. Some digital stories include the entire class, while others use a smaller group of selected students. Video length is generally 2 to 10 minutes.
