Abstract

The learner-centered teaching and learning are techniques that focus on developing skills that meet the challenges that face learners in the 21st century. Many colleges and universities have an Office of Instructional Technology Support, which provides faculty members with the technology, tools and support needed to enhance teaching and learning. From a constructionist perspective, knowledge cannot simply be given to students: Students must construct their own meanings" (Stage, Muller, Kinzie, and Simmons, 1998, P. 35). This presentation will highlight case studies of using digital storytelling methods with two purposes. The first is to enable students to engage in active and meaningful learning by constructing and expressing themselves with multimedia assignments and projects. The second is to empower liberal arts education communities in the instructional technology support process that promotes the best practices of learner-centered teaching and learning through mobile devices, media rich apps, and geospatial technologies.
