READ 6706 Week 7We are living in a digital age where children are do tech savvy and know how to use technology better than most adults. Since this is the norm its can be beneficial to use digital story in the classroom. Our students are so connected to technology and including it into our lesson can openthe students to more ideas, creativity and enhance interaction. Digital stories allow students to take a linear series of events and turn them into multidimensional experience (EdTechTeacher, 2014). I like the idea that students can add their voice and ideas into stories. Since digital stories offer visuals it is also a great tool to use for ELL learners as it can help with reading and writing. In this digital age there are so many ways that digital stories can help literacy instruction, students can use technology to collaborate on activities, make their own stories, develop oral language and writing skills. Additionally, since digital stories contain a mixture of computer-based images, audio and video clips students won’t lose interest easily like with regular text.
