Learn to blend the traditional art form of storytelling through puppetry with it's digital counterpart. I loved puppets as a child and have returned to seeing the importance of using them to tell stories to and with our children today. We need to blend where they are in this digital world with those traditional stories and hands-on building skills to transport students back to the wondrous world of stories. You can use various programs on the iPod, iPad, PC and MAC to tell digital stories using various types of puppets. Not every child wants to be on camera but would gladly tell a story using a puppet if given the opportunity. You can even tell the story from the puppets point of view for a new perspective or take a journey to a foreign land. Hey - put Discovery Content in the background and who knows where you can go!
