On the Digital Storytelling section (http://dsi.kqed.org/index.php/inspirations) you can find out more about
* Annual Digital Storytelling Contest and Festival for high school students

* Digital Storytelling: Watch stories, explore narrative, investigate new technologies and check out resources that have to do with digital storytelling. Including Mobile Projects such as "'Scape the Hood", the first gps-enabled mobile media project:
"Scape the Hood was conceived and designed as a locative storytelling project for the Digital Storytelling Initiative at KQED for the opening of the 8th annual Digital Storytelling Festival. We convened a group of storytellers, artists, and technologists to envision what this project could be. It became a narrative archeology experiment, combining digital storytelling and emerging technology by overlaying a virtual landscape on the physical world. As originally designed, the audience walks the streets and listens to the neighbourhood stories, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells from both the physical and the virtual world."

Learning MATH - video lessons

Annenberg Media develops workshops and courses that provide teachers with content and pedagogical learning. Workshop and course resources consist of video, print and Web components that can be used for self-study. "Patterns, Functions, and Algebra" explores the "big ideas" in algebraic thinking, such as finding, describing, and using patterns; using functions to make predictions; understanding linearity and proportional reasoning; understanding nonlinear functions; and understanding and exploring algebraic structure. The course consists of 10 two-and-a-half hour sessions that each include video programming and activities, provided online and in a print guide. The 10th session explores ways to apply the algebraic concepts you've learned in K-8 classrooms. You should complete the sessions sequentially.

Table of contents: 

Session 1, Algebraic Thinking
Session 2, Patterns in Context
Session 3, Functions and Algorithms
Session 4, Proportional Reasoning
Session 5, Linear Functions and Slope
Session 6, Solving Equations
