NSW Schools “A day in my life” Project
In this project, schools from around NSW created digital stories portraying a typical day in the life of students, reflecting the diversity of NSW schools and students. Professional development in digital film making was provided to teachers, who then developed films with their classes. This was a joint initiative of NSW DET, Macquarie ICT Innovations Centre and Multicultural Programs Unit.

National Literacy & Numeracy Week:
Read for Australia
For National Literacy and Numeracy Week 2011, students from primary and secondary schools around Australia had the opportunity to create digital stories to be featured on the NLNW website. Students and teachers together chose from books listed on the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s shortlisted books list or a personal favourite to base their digital story on. Examples of digital stories were created to help students get started.
