SESSION TITLE: Storytelling with a Digital Twist!

SESSION TIME: 15 minutes

SESSION DESCRIPTION: Combine technology, creativity, art and apps to integrate art with the CCSS! Using devices to take photos/video and record speech can help students practice speaking and listening and increase their fluency. Learn how to integrate these digital connections to the ELA CCSS: speaking audibly, expressing thoughts, feelings, and ideas clearly, describing people, places and things. You and your students will be able to create memorable multimedia components and visual displays to share and present.
