Imagine a learning experience, supported and extended by the application of technology, that empowers students to create and contribute, all within the context of what they are expected to know and be able to do in the 21st Century. Imagine that this learning experience provides students with a compelling and competitive voice and enlarges the boundaries of their ability to communicate, potentially to a worldwide audience. That learning experience is digital storytelling.

*Characteristics of Engaged Learners

Responsible for their own learning
They invest personally in the quest for knowledge and understanding, in
part because the questions or issues being investigated are drawn from
their own curiosity about the world. Projects are pertinent and questions
are essential.
Energized by learning
They feel excited, intrigued and motivated to solve the puzzles, make new
answers and reach insight. Their work feels both important and
worthwhile.
Strategic
They make thoughtful choices from a toolkit of strategies, considering
carefully which approach, which source and which technique may work
best to resolve a particular information challenge.
Collaborative
They work with others in a coordinated, planful manner, splitting up the
work according to a plan and sharing good ideas during the search for
understanding.

This is just a fun way to get your students learning! You can take a picture of a famous person (like Beethoven, for example) and record the voice of someone or yourself stating facts about Beethoven, as if you were him. The mouth moves when the final project is complete. It is super easy, and I think students would really get a kick out of it!
