Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – Rockin’ in the Classroom

Participants will learn about how education is evolving at the Rock Hall. The Rock Hall’s Education Department is redesigning their K-12 on site program Rockin’ the Schools as well as their online platform Digital Classroom for launch in fall 2017. In this presentation, they will demonstrate how and why they are changing their programs by looking at their past practices, roadblocks they have faced, and new ways that they can cater to the needs of today’s teacher. The redesigns include streamlining onsite programming, designing a new pedagogical model, and utilizing an online, open-access platform that will better allow teachers to access and use assets from all around the globe.

Student Success through Digital Storytelling features two sessions from the CAL residency program Digital Storytelling: Find Your Voice. In the first session learn the programming, equipment and technology, and how to best prepare for various learning environments. In second session create a short digital story with the guidance of trained CAL staff. Teaching artists and CAL staff will guide participants in writing and producing a two-minute digital story that weaves together a social issue or autobiographical story with still images, music, narrative, and voice—creating a compelling multimedia presentation that is entirely their own. Participants can experiment with new forms of technology and learn how incorporating digital media adds impact and dimension to their stories. Apply artistic and reasoning skills to imagine, create, and refine dramatic and theatrical works in innovative ways. Participants can “find their voice” and acquire a wide-range of program, artistic, design, technical, and soft skills that are highly valued in our 21st century classrooms.
