Finding Meaning through Projects and Storytelling

How to give learners space to create a learning project which they can share? Whether it is for information literacies, the environment or any other topic which may be part of their syllabus, Sutori is a great,  user-friendly tool to use to show case a project. 

Sutori creates visual stories and timelines, allowing a range of files to be added, as you can see in the image below:

When logging in, you have different templates to choose from, or simply select a blank template; however, to have access to embedding and the other features that Sutori offers, one has to have a paid account. Sutori also offers a range of resources for educators, with examples of how it can be used for different subjects (e.g. How Social Studies Teachers Use Sutori , How English Teachers Use Sutori and even case studies for Higher Education). 

This is a simple example (very simple,  as I am using the free version at the moment), but it shows how user-friendly Sutori is and how it can be easily shared by students in a class or individual blog.  Students can then also comment on the information included and cross-check links and sources.

Learning is a process, a sequence of steps, a messy continuum, a narrative of growth and growing up.

Whether for stories or factual narratives, there are many ways in which learners can be engaged in their digital creations.

It all begins by giving them the opportunity to learn and create.
