I am co-teaching a new class this semester called Digital Literacy with our school librarian, Judy VanAlstyne. Each week a different student will be a guest blogger and share what we have been working on during our class. Here is the first installment.

In Digital Literacy my class is telling a story and using technology, in some way, to tell it. Our creativity process rubric involved thinking about how we can improve on our story telling, technology use, who our reader is and the message we give to them. Some students are creating iMovies, animations, Keynotes, iBooks, and pictures galleries. We had a lot of freedom with this project and it was conformable to the student. I personally had a lot of fun creating this project. I wrote a story using pages and took some photos. Then sent it to an online bookstore, Lulu.com, to print it. Our class is having gallery to present our projects. I am looking forward to seeing my classmates’ projects.
