Dr Philip Towndrow and Dr Galyna Kogut to Publish Book on Digital Storytelling for Educative Purposes
Friday, 20 November 2020
Dr Philip Towndrow, Senior Research Scientist at the Office of Education Research (OER), and Dr Galyna Kogut, OER Research Associate, have written a book titled Digital Storytelling for Educative Purposes: Providing an Evidence-Base for Classroom Practice. The book is an exposition of curriculum innovation in school-based education in Singapore, connecting classroom practices with theories. This provides a series of rationales for action, reflection and understanding which include, broadly, digital multimodal authorship; teachers’ and students’ storytelling task design and assessment; the use of digital storytelling as a reflective and reflexive expression of teachers’ professionalism; and dialogism in classroom practice.
The book was based on findings from Dr Towndrow’s project “Visualising and Performing Character and Citizenship through Digital Storytelling” and is available for preorder here.
