Gain professional-level "Production 101" skills for high-level digital storytelling projects. Content is accessible for elementary and middle schoolers as well as higher grades. Concepts are presented through video instruction, facilitated discussions, and video samples for viewing and critique. Interspersed activities build on knowledge to end with the completed video projects. Three styles of moviemaking programs make it simple to utilize digital storytelling as the structure to organize a study of almost any academic unit from history to science…literature to Geography…social studies to math… the opportunities are limitless. Digital storytelling bridges different learning styles and reaches reluctant learners by approaching learning with hands-on and student-directed activities.


Easy-to-follow instructor guides remove the need for special knowledge of art, filmmaking, or technology, allowing for the courses to be led by any interested person. Instructional videos direct student activities so that the leader is more of a guide and supervisor than an instructor.


Yet to be added


After more than twenty-five years as a multimedia instructional designer, I developed these programs in order to integrate art and technology into the academic curriculum at an elementary school for the gifted and talented. Since the inception of our programming in 2010, thousands of elementary and middle school students have participated in Digistars programs through classroom-based units where moviemaking was used as the vehicle for studying a topic, in creative "elective" classes, in after-school enrichment programs, or during daylong or weeklong summer camps. As the designer, I have a AB from Bowdoin College, a Masters in Liberal Studies with a Focus in Creative Writing, and a Doctorate from Trinity School of Natural Health. I began working in the film and video industry in 1988 and became an instructional designer for tech companies in the mid-1990s.


Digistars is based in Denver, Colorado, where I live with my two children.
