artifact description
What do you remember easiest? Data, information or stories? No matter what discipline or course you teach, storytelling can be a useful tool in enabling students to research, grasp, synthesize and retain information. “Stories bring data to life.” This session will begin with a discussion of the art of storytelling and proceed to explore several useful tools that can be used by you and your students to tell a story. The presenters will cover online and desktop apps from Comic Life to Storyline to Xtranormal to ZooBurst and more.
