Abstract

Digital stories blend audio, voice, and images into powerful creations, and have become a compelling tool for classroom teachers and students. Although the tools, skills, and practices incorporated into the making of digital stories resonate with today's students, successful and appropriate integration of technology into the classroom and curriculum remains an issue for educators. Leaders from the Association for Science Teacher Education (ASTE), the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE), the Conference on English Educators (CEE), the National Association of Early Childhood Teacher Educators (NAECTE), and the College and University Faculty Assembly (CUFA–Social Studies) will present on the opportunities and challenges that digital stories offer for their respective disciplines, by sharing a representative digital story. The panel will be followed by commentary offered by the Director of the Center for Digital Storytelling, and will conclude with an audience Q&A.
