Storytelling for the YouTube Generation

Storytelling for the YouTube Generation
Steve Dembo, Online Community Manager, Discovery Educator Network, Discovery Education
Alternate Title
Kids tell stories in thousands of new and different ways, let them!
"I do not give assignments, I give creative briefs."
You can make interactive choose your own adventure videos on YouTube.
Step 1: Watch all the videos linked in the presentation in class.
Step 2: Give kids a topic.
Step 3: Give kids a due date.
Step 4: Watch awesome material on your topic.

Seems simple doesn't it?

Steve's main point: let your learners have the freedom to create. They will. And they will get better if you keep letting them.
