Capstone Project Title
Melissa Erickson & Vivian Johnson
The guiding question addressed in this project is how can we improve language skills through digital storytelling for primary students? The main idea of this capstone is to address the changes that are occurring in classrooms today and how students can gain confidence in the reading and writing process. Throughout this project capstone, there are multiple examples of how young children can benefit from extending literacy elements through the process of digital storytelling using technology tools. The research for this capstone is based on early childhood psychology and aspects of how incorporating digital storytelling into the classroom can benefit children from a young age. The purpose of this capstone project is a year-long professional development workshop that breaks down the ways educators can incorporate technology elements into their classrooms and help their students become more confident in reading while encouraging 21st-century skills through creativity, independence, and leadership.
