A Digital Story is a personal narrative created by weaving digital photographs, video, voice, text and music into a digital video project.  Easily adaptable to any curriculum or theme, this workshop provides an opportunity for students to move from being passive consumers of media to active creators through the production of visual narratives. Students will storyboard their project, learn photography composition skills and edit their projects using iMovie.
