Transcript

  • 1. Ed Tech Week 4<br />Digital Storytelling: Reasons, Methods & Tools<br />
  • 2. The power of storytelling <br />The literary mind – the mind of stories and parables – is not peripheral but basic to thought. Story is the central principle of our experience and knowledge. Parable – the projection of story to give meaning to new encounters – is the indispensable tool of everyday reason. Literary thought makes everyday thought possible. This book makes the revolutionary claim that the basic issue for cognitive science is the nature of literary thinking.<br />Mark Turner, The Literary Mind, www.markturner.org/lm.html<br />
  • 3. First a story to illustrate…<br />Fairytale of PGDE<br />ClipArt for Fairytale of PGDE from Purdue<br />Note: I said to myself if I couldn’t create this intro in 15 minutes it would not be worth showing … <br />It took 20 minutes to create and edit…(not including planning and scripting)…. I spent 5 full minutes selecting the music! <br />
  • 4. Sample stories & their uses<br />A few classroom examples: <br />PhotoStory: <br />History revision resource: click here<br />Pupils’ ‘stories’ of science experiments <br />Alternatives to PhotoStory are MovieMaker/ iMovie<br />PhotoPeach: Washington Trip – note use of quiz feature<br />Alternative online story slide editors… see CogDogRoo<br />
  • 5. Where to get images...<br />Save a PowerPoint slide as an image Save As… (other formats) <br />Take your own photos!<br />Use student photos, drawings (link up with Art Dept.)<br />Image bank on Scoilnet<br />Google Images… Flickr … etc.<br />More suggestions here(for copyright-free images)<br />
  • 6. I asked you to…<br />Discuss the advantages of <br />getting pupils to create & share presentations <br />(Apart from impressing your supervisor! )<br />You said….<br />
  • 7. Feedback from the discussion…<br />Engagement – getting students involved<br />Quiz - Students can create their own questions – could work as closure at the end of lesson<br />Visual Learners – combining media for different learners<br />Students have ownership – they have a sense of pride in their work<br />Multimedia resource for different topics – students work on different topics and share them<br />Summary – could work for revision <br />Outside school – could work as a project about the school (TY students)<br />Work in groups and practise presentations <br />Encourages students to acquire knowledge for themselves and share it with their peers<br />Show students that learning can be cooperative – doesn’t have to be competitive <br />
  • 8. What the research says…<br />Creativity, inventive & higher order thinking <br />Practicing real-world digital communication<br />Drawing on pupils’ range of intelligences<br />Deepening understanding - telling what you know in a story deepens your own understanding of the known<br />Affinity: creating meaningful engaging work and discovering themselves as successful learners <br />
  • 9. What the research says…<br />Wider audience for the student work…<br />Greater accuracy, attention to detail & motivation<br />Responsibility & pride in producing good work. <br />Develop transferable skills<br />Collaboration/team skills<br />Self-expression and inter-personal development<br />Visual and media literacy (judgment, selecting & presenting appropriate images, learning how to sequence a story/ a sequence of events). <br />Technical skills set<br />
  • 10. PhotoStory<br />Advantages <br />Easy for pupils to learn<br />Available to download <br />Enables storyboarding, scripting and creative use of music<br />Things to bear in mind<br />Folder and file management<br />Your PhotoStory project file & your finished video file are different file formats<br />.wp3: your work in progress file (you can return to edit)<br />.wmv or .avi your finished video file ( it is uneditable)<br />Ask a techie for help if you need more information to get this. <br />How to use Photostory Guide<br />
  • 11. PhotoPeach<br />Advantages<br />Easy to learn and use<br />Online – easy to edit, share, embed<br />Contains range of music<br />Quiz feature – effective for self-evaluation <br />Links to YouTube sound files (could add your own narrative on YouTube and draw on this for voice over)<br />Things to bear in mind<br />No download or add own music on basic package<br />Test to ensure PhotoPeach is not blocked<br />Encourage pupils to be safe – no names, contact details<br />Ensure if using YouTube link that site is not blocked<br />
  • 12. Your task for Week 4 <br />Create a simple story <br />Choose any theme<br />Use at least five images <br />Include captions <br />Make it run for least 2 mins<br />Choose from Photostory, PhotoPeach or any of the tools listed on CogDogRoo<br />Post your story to Moodle<br /> (or email to angela.rickard@nuim.ie)<br />Just do it… I dare you! <br />Deadline: <br />Tuesday 2nd Nov 2010<br />Incentive… <br />Win a digital camera!<br />Work with another person & win a digital camera each! <br />
