Stories have the power to inform, inspire, connect, and mobilize. Stories can cut through rhetoric, data points, and policies and show the reality of the world around us — successes, challenges, and everything in between. With many competing opinions on how to implement digital learning effectively, compelling stories can influence decision-makers, and inspire people and communities to action.
Digital Promise can help leadership understand the importance of story and evaluate their storytelling capabilities, prepare students and teachers to plan, capture and produce stories about learning, or develop a series of multimedia stories that reflect the district’s vision and progress for digital learning.
