Are you a math or science educator who thinks traditional story problems are often dull and disconnected from students’ everyday experience?  Would you like to offer math and science students more opportunities to learn about real-world challenges and scenarios?  In this workshop participants will create video story problems as one strategy for amplifying curiosity in math and science through investigations of real-world phenomena.  Participants will explore how to create, prototype, and publish video story problems applicable to various K-12 settings by learning about narrative structures, digital storytelling elements, and by building bridges between student learning in the math and science classroom and real-world applications.  Digital video is a unique medium for educators to foster literacy skills with their students, introduce formative assessment methods, and leverage connections among digital literacy, Common Core Standards, and creativity.  Essential to this DIY curricular approach - and this workshop - is the notion that narrative storytelling and playful learning is at the heart of education innovation and new approaches to teaching and learning.  Participants are expected to bring their own computers and mobile devices for shooting and creating video, as well as examples of math and science problems that have worked (or not worked) for generating student engagement.
