Digital Story evaluation: 10 points each
Digital Craftsmanship Command of the media? Was the use of media appropriate, supportive of the story, balanced and well considered? This 57 minute TED talk is well made and the media is appropriate for educational environments. The digital craftsmanship is excellent and the analysis made of the state of education in the United States is sound. The principal who is speaking tells a well balanced story of what the struggles are for teachers and students in many of the inner cities in the United States.
Points: 10
Audience Engagement How well did the story capture and keep audience engagement? Was the level of interactivity appropriate to the story being told.  While this video is long, it is an excellent representation  of the challenges posed to teachers in many urban areas. The level of engagement was appropriate and will keep adult learning engaged.

Points: 10

Originality, voice, creativity How creative was the production? Did the presentation exhibit an original sense of voice and a fresh perspective? The video offers a fresh perspective on what it takes to be successful inner city school teacher, the speakers voice is authentic and offers an original sense of voice.
Points 10


I really liked this video because it was easy to relate to as a teacher in Denver Colorado. Many of the challenges that this principal and her teachers go through are similar to the experiences of Denver Public School teachers.

Final score 30/30. I would highly recommend this format or digital story to introduce teachers to ideas and strategies that may help them become for effective in their teaching craft.
