Hi Folks,
      Do you have a story that shows how technology impacts the lives of students?  Do you know how to create simple movies?  If so, that combination can win you a trip to NECC in Denver in 2010.

     As part of their 30th Anniversary efforts, ISTE has put out a call
for a Digital Story Telling Corp, and is asking educators to submit
videos of stories that need to be told. 

     Bernajean Porter has held a number webinars about it.  You can access an Adobe Connect recording of one webinar by visiting the ISTE Digital Story Telling wiki  and clicking on the link to
the webinar is at the top of the page.
      Videos that have been and will be submitted will be shown at NECC and
will be used in efforts to move Tech Ed funding forward.  Submitted
videos can be seen at .

     Here’s my story. I’m hardly a George Lucas as far a video is concerned, and this video doesn’t qualify for the contest, because it’s a bit too long, but I didn’t post it to win the contest.  It’s simply a story that needs to be told and might help ISTE in their efforts to advance the cause of technology in education.

     So if you have a story to tell, break out the video camera and tell it!
