On June 5th & 6th, 8th & 9th, from 9am to 3pm, the University of Arizona Poetry Center's Education Program will be hosting a workshop called Transformative Learning: A Digital Storytelling Workshop for K-12 Teachers.
Teachers who take advantage of this professional development opportunity will have the chance to tell a story about their experience with education using multi-media tools. Each participant will be able to use their own laptop in this wifi enabled Poetry Center classroom to assemble audio narration, photographs and other bits of raw material into something that has the power to impact a viewer's mind and heart. This workshop has a dual purpose: in addition to helping participants spread the word about the important work they do in the world, teachers can bring these tools back to their students when the school year begins.
The class will be taught by Jen Nowicki-Clark and Josh Schacter, who collectively bring almost thirty years of experience teaching digital storytelling techniques to communities around the world. Due to the popularity of this class, registration is now closed, but if you are interested in joining the waitlist, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
