Digital Storytelling for Educative Purposes
Providing an Evidence-Base for Classroom Practice
Phillip Alexander Towndrow, Galyna Kogut
This book is an exposition of a curriculum innovation within the complex yet fertile ground of school-based education in Singapore. Beyond straightforward descriptions and protocols, this book purposefully connects classroom practices with theories in a clear, uncomplicated way. The result provides a series of rationales for action, reflection and understanding that other publications in digital storytelling sometimes fail to cover or explain in sufficient detail. Broadly, these include digital multimodal authorship; teachers’ and students’ storytelling task design and assessment; the use of digital storytelling as a reflective and reflexive expression of teachers’ professionalism; and dialogism in classroom practice.
