This workshop is designed for mainstream educators, migrant program staff, parent leaders and their secondary age children. The strategies developed for digital storytelling may be applied in family literacy programs as well as in classrooms.  Participants will learn how to engage families and build supportive learning communities  through empowerment  by creating and sharing family stories. 

These stories generate rich literacy learning contexts, integrate technology and support families in honoring, sharing and celebrating migrant family backgrounds.
