Abstract

This paper presents successes and challenges of an iPad digital storytelling project in an early learning environment. The focus of the implementation was on the incorporation of digital storytelling activities supported by iPad technology into classroom practice. Findings of the research provide insights regarding the introduction of new technology into the classroom, engagement of students with slowmation storytelling techniques, use of specialty apps, and issues/solutions identified with the management of iPad devices. Numerous implications of this research, including examining the constructionist theories and the learning behind the creation of educational artifacts, apply to the development of 21st Century learner skills. In practice, both management issues regarding implementing new technology as well as the pedagogical implications exist; providing students with technology access that allows them to create digital stories and potentially share them beyond the classroom.
