This week we’ll take a look at the many ways—the 50+ ways, according to Alan Levin—we and our students can tell a story using Web 2.0 media. Our materials for this week focus on why and how Web 2.0 storytelling in particular can enrich and support our students’ learning. Be sure to read these articles while signed into Diigo as I’ve saved them to our group. Feel free to contribute to the discussion in that venue by responding to questions, leaving comments or highlighting for the group. We will spend time on Monday exploring those materials within Diigo. For Friday’s Elluminate session we can break into groups to evaluate some digital stories using Bloom’s revised taxonomy.
If you were to evaluate the above video as well as this mock Hamlet Facebook page (click on the picture to enlarge it) using Bloom’s revised taxonomy, which cognitive levels would they address? Would you consider these evidence of learning? In what ways do they reflect Web 2.0 storytelling as described in Bryan Alexander’s and Alan Levine’s article?
