In my first round of inquiry my driving question was "How does digital storytelling affect reading comprehension?" I was interested in using digital storytelling tools to retell stories that they have read in class. At the beginning of the school year, students were really uninterested in the stories that we were reading in class. I was trying to get them excited and interact with the text but I was not sure how to do that. So after some researching, I decided to use digital storytelling tools to REtell the story (instead of creating a story themselves). After doing my first round of inquiry, I realized I wanted to not limit myself to digital storytelling tools and open up my tool box to all digital tools that would help with comprehension. So now my new driving question is: How do digital tools help improve comprehension? I'm not sure if this is the exact one I want to use, but I'm working on it. I just recently used Flipgrid to help retell the story in my classroom during my second round of inquiry. The first round I used Voicethread.
