Today's Question:
How can we support young learners as creative writers through digital tools?

In this episode, Dario and Ernesto chatted with Diego about how to teach storytelling with or without technology. Storytelling is a personal narrative that can use fiction or other creative writing elements. Storytelling gives students the chance to create with the language and engage in multi-modal writing and develop all language skills. Our guests shared their advice on how to teach storytelling and what apps/websites teachers can use.
