- East Burke High Student Saves a Life - When an East Burke High senior decided to visit his friend at work on a whim, he had no idea he would become a hero later that day. After his friend’s coworker collapsed, the student performed life-saving CPR, which he was certified in through his nursing fundamentals class, on the man until paramedics arrived. The student, who would like to become an ER nurse, used the experience to spread the word to his classmates about the importance of learning CPR and credits the courses he has taken in high school and college in helping him save the man’s life.

Chalk Talk: Digital Storytelling: Putting It Altogether
Once students select their images, music, audio clips, etc. for their digital storybooks, which tell a story or present information about a topic using a variety of digital multimedia, teachers should have their students create dedicated computer-based folders to save them in. After that, students should be ready to actually record their narration—with the use of microphones—using a program such as Photo Story 3, Movie Maker, or iMove. They will then insert their images and music—using the storyboards they would have previously created as a guide—and adjust the timing for each slide. If students are less adept at using technology or there is limited technology availability in the classroom, one option is to use PowerPoint. Students can type out their narrative by slide and insert images, audio clips (perhaps voice recordings), music, and animations where necessary.
