December 3 Webinar: Once Upon A Time

November 27th, 2009

From “Once Upon A Time” to “Happily Ever After”, every child knows the “proper” way to tell a bedtime story — and woe be unto the narrator that knowingly or unknowingly deviates from the expected framework. Some narrative frameworks have utility that goes well beyond soothing sleepless toddlers, though: these frameworks will form the focus of this session. We will also see how to integrate them into a digital toolkit, and how to use them as a basis for collaborative digital storytelling.

    I didn’t find that this webinar was applicable to my school and my staff’s needs. It went into so much detail on story construction at a level beyond middle school ( or even high school except perhaps an honors class at the junior or senior level) and didn’t help me use technology with staff.

      I’m sorry to hear that the webinar did not meet your needs. However, I think it is important to note that the approach I outlined in the webinar (combining Campbell/Propp’s detailed models with technology for structuring and visualizing analysis and writing) has been used very successfully in both middle and high schools for over a decade. For instance, this Hero’s Journey website, created by Alan Levine and his team, has been used since 1998 by students of all levels in this way. If you would like to contact me, I will be happy to discuss ways in which the approach could be adapted to the topics and books being read in your school.
