Pawling Public Radio is offering a tuition-free summer enrichment program for incoming 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. The program, Digital Storytelling, will be taught by Paula Boeglin, the Technology Director for Mizzentop Day School.
Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music.
Students will create original stories that include text, drawings, photos, and audio. They will use technology to bring their stories to life. Story ideas can come from personal and family experiences, connections to other cultures, and real or imaginary people, places, or events.
The students will begin with an idea and then translate it to a StoryBoard. There will be computers, microphones and scanners available for the students to use.
The program will take place at Mizzentop Day School on East Main Street in Pawling. Two sessions are available this July. Session One will take place Monday July 21 through Thursday July 24 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Session Two will be a one-day workshop on Monday, July 28 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
