Digital Storytelling

This is the digital story I created to help support Glacier Valley's after-school Digital Storytelling Club funded through Association of Alaska School Boards' ICE grant. You can add videos, photos, links to websites, etc. directly into your post by utilizing the toolbar that's available to you when creating your entry. That's what I did to insert this video. If you'd like to see some of the digital stories that our students created from the club, just click here: Digital Storytelling at Glacier Valley. The same technology used to create these movies could be used to put the Basic Art Institute participants' stories online. Between Bev and I, perhaps we can help make that happen for Pam's sessions. Just a thought.

Opening Minds to the Arts (OMA)

Thought you might enjoy this video from Edutopia's article, "Tucson Schools Enhance Learning with the Arts." It is featured in the February issue dedicated to Arts Education. Enjoy!

Welcome!

Welcome to our Basic Arts Institute 2010 blog! We hope that this site will help encourage dialogue between this summer's participants. Please share ideas, questions and resources so that we can all benefit from everyone's entries.
