Learn to communicate in the most powerful and ubiquitous medium of our time: Digital Video. In this certificate, students will learn how to create manageable workflows to involve their students in telling the stories of their lives in digital videos, documentaries, and animations. Students will develop their own digital video storytelling skills so they can capture their audience and artfully compel them to consider their point of view on a topic. Teachers learn skills for narrative fiction, non-fiction, animation, and journalistic approaches to this communication medium. Teach fourth-twelfth grade students to tell stories worth watching and capture their complete attention. 

Courses are online and seven weeks in length.
