Digital Stories

This digital story was created in June of 2011 in celebration of my 40th birthday. It was a gift to my mother, Karen Puskala Armstrong, and I use it as a teaching tool in my classroom when we read Shakespeare’s, Romeo and Juliet, in 9th grade English.

This digital story was created in June of 2009 as a gift to my father, James Armstrong, and I use it as a teaching tool at the beginning of the year when we read selections from Tim O’Brien’s, The Things They Carried, in 9th grade English.

This video slide show was created in May of 2012 after I took a trip to Poland and Israel with the Holocaust Educators Network sponsored by the Memorial Library in NYC.

This collaborative digital story was created with Heather Hollands to chronicle of our journey to bring a Holocaust survivor to our school district. Inge Auerbacher will always be in our hearts and we will continue to bear witness for her.

  1. How lovely! Wonder if I could make something like this a project for my small rotary club? What was the effect on the shy girl in the back?

    • Thank you, Adrianne. I hope that you create a digital story for your Rotary Club. A word of caution – once you get the digital storytelling bug it becomes an obsession. 😀 It is powerful to be able to layer image with voice and music. I think that using digital storytelling as tool has helped transformed my classroom and it helps many of my “shy” students find their voice. Thank you for your comment and for watching and visiting my blog. 🙂
