Art, history, science, math, and literature can come alive through digital storytelling, a skill that is now simple and entertaining to learn thanks to the partnership with Pixar Studios and Khan Academy. Short video modules covering the craft of storytelling will take you through the steps for creating animated stories and presentations. A large variety of lessons that incorporate art, science, technology, math, and design are available for different grade levels (5/6, 7/8, 9-12).

Participants will go through two volumes of Pixar short films videos and will develop their own storytelling activity sheets using handouts from Teachers Pay Teachers and hands-on activities provided by Khan Academy. This course is geared to teachers and their students, grades 4-12 and to home school educators. It’s an excellent way to fulfill STEM/STEAM requirements as well as to provide students with skills for the 21st century.

When mathematics is taught with real-world lessons, students develop long-term conceptual understanding. The challenge for K-8 teachers is where and how to integrate these lessons. The three pedagogical practices of Problem-based learning, Project-based learning and Inquiry around five foundational skills for mathematics are key concepts. You will learn to create tasks rooted in a real-life connection to these concepts. Research suggests that a strong foundation in these areas is key for math success. $5 material fee due to instructor after registration
