Digital Storytelling Lesson from Digitizing the Writing Workshop

The lesson plan is suitable for students in grades 4-10.
Students work in groups of 4 to write a collaborative story. Each student chooses a picture or visual image for their story prompt and begin to compose their story on a computer. The amount of time spent writing will depend on the grade level. After the allowed time, each person in the group will rotate to the next person's computer to build upon their story. Once students have contributed to every group member's story once they will return to their original computer. Students then finish their story by adding additional images and text. They will then use Microsoft Photostory 3 to create a digital story.
