Digital Storytelling in ELT Classrooms





Digital storytelling is the practice of using computer tools for telling a story. These stories are rich in visual elements and mostly found to be attractive by the language learners. However, teachers usually think that creating, editing or publishing a video is a really difficult task for them; but a software called Windows Movie Maker is a very user-friendly software. The aim of this session is to show how to Windows Movie Maker software while creating and editing videos; and at the end of the session participants will have the chance to create their own videos and publish them online.
