  • We all have a story to add to our portfolios. These digital stories provide opportunities for a richness not possible in print. Some stories will represent the fresh innocence of youth, some will reflect the experiences of a rich life. The audiences might be worldwide, like the BBC Wales, but most likely the audiences will be small and intimate.

    50. 50. Process to develop digital stories1. Script development: write the story, often with a group called a story circle to provide feedback and story development ideas2. Record the author reading the story (audio recording and editing)3. Capture and process the images to further illustrate the story (image scanning and editing)4. Combine audio and images (and any additional video) onto a timeline, add music track (video editing)5. Present or publish finished version of story

    54. 54. This following Word Cloud was created collaboratively by educators around theWordle.net world, who contributed keywords that came to their mind when thinking about Digital Storytelling. Words that appear larger were used by more contributors. http://langwitches.org/blog/2008/07/27/digital-
    55. 55. What is the process?http://electronicportfolios.org/digistory/howto.
    56. 56. Step 1: Decide on the Story You Want to TellStories Created by Teachers Can Serve: As a Lesson Hook As a Way to Integrate Multimedia into the Curriculum As a Way to Make Difficult Content More Understandable To Facilitate Classroom Discussion
    57. 57. An Effective Learning Tool for StudentsResearch Skills Interview SkillsWriting Skills InterpersonalOrganization SkillsSkills Problem-SolvingTechnology Skills SkillsPresentation AssessmentSkills Skills
    58. 58. Step 2: Gather Your Materials Start gathering photos, digital video, flyers, mementos — anything that holds emotional resonance. Dont think you have to go out and visually capture a story with a camcorder or camera. Use what you have! Export Powerpoint slides to JPEG (Save As…) Capture digital photos with any camera (including cell phones)• Get permissions for using images of students OR learn how to take anonymous photos (no faces) http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    59. 59. Step 3: Begin Writing Your Script• Play out a rough story in your head.• Sketch out a script that youll soon record with your own voice. People want to hear a personal voice. Get personal. Write lousy first drafts. Dont edit as you go.• Write short. Youll be surprised at how much you can convey with a few words and some key images. Read your script aloud as youre fine-tuning it. Dont hold back. Be real. http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    60. 60. Script writing (cont.)• Look for a narrative arc for your story. All stories — even three-minute gems — have a beginning, middle, and end.• Work on the pace. Many consider pacing to be the true secret of successful storytelling. The rhythm and tempo of a story is what sustains an audiences interest. Trust your voice. All of us have our own distinctive style of storytelling. Trust yours. Read your script to a friend when you think youve finished. http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    61. 61. Step 4: Prep Your Equipment• A desktop computer or laptop.• Video software such as Apple iMovie, MovieMaker2 or PhotoStory3. A (desktop) scanner, if you want to include traditional photos in your story.Additionally, if you plan to record interviews, youll need: A recording device: for video, a camcorder; for audio, a portable digital recorder or an analog cassette recorder (if you use analog video or audio, youll also need to convert it to digital). A handheld microphone for audio interviews. Headphones. http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    62. 62. Step 5: Create a Storyboard• A storyboard is simply a place to plan out a visual story on two levels: 1) Time — What happens in what order? and 2) Interaction — How does the voiceover and music work with the images or video?• A good rule of thumb is to use no more than 15 images and no more than two minutes of video. As a general rule, four to six seconds is the ideal time for an image to appear on-screen, http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    63. 63. I. Script• Look at examples of specific stories on the WWW.• Use the Script template, answering these questions: • Who is your audience? • What is your dramatic question? You may want to go over your script with a facilitator before recording your voice-overs. Use GoogleDocs to share your story for feedback DEMO – Script in GoogleDocs
    64. 64. What’s Your Story? Conducting a Story Circle
    65. 65. II. Record Voice NarrationUse a microphone andtransfer your audio clipsto your computer. Easi-Speak
    66. 66. Mobile Devices (Chrome & iOS)• Recording Script- Audio Recording Apps
    67. 67. How? Recording Digital Audio• On a computer* On a digital tape recorder• On an iOS device * Requires software
    68. 68. On a Computer • Software: Audacity (free) • Recommend using external Microphone • Need a Computer (less portability)Samson USB Mic
    69. 69. Audio Editing Software • Audacity (free download) Audacity Tutorial Garage Band • DEMO
    70. 70. On a Digital Recorder • Portable • Digital= Good Quality but Expensive • Analog= Lower Quality but Cheap • Transfer into computer – Digital = file – Analog = cable+software
    71. 71. Step 6: Record a Voice- Over• On a computer* (use Audacity) - using external Microphone (record your voice-over at the same quality level that you record your musical soundtrack: 16-bit, 44 kHz.) On a digital tape recorder Digital= Good Quality but Expensive Speak slowly in a – Analog= Lower Quality but Cheap conversational Transfer into computer voice. Dont make Digital = file it sound like youre – Analog = cable+software reading from a script. http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    72. 72. Step 7: Digitize Your Media• If youre using photos, youll need a flatbed scanner. Scan them and save them to a single folder on your computer. (200 dots per inch)• If youre using digital photos, make sure theyre in JPEG format. Keep in mind that your video will be horizontal in form, so crop accordingly. Dont distort vertical photos into horizontal ones, but realize that strong vertical shapes will appear with lots of black on both sides. http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    73. 73. Mobile Devices (Chrome & iOS)• Recording Script- Image editing apps
    74. 74. III. Images Scanned and SizedWhen searching Googleimages, select only the Largeor Extra Large images(Size: Larger than 640x480)Scanning from a book use 200DPI.
    75. 75. Sources of Creative Commons Images• Flickr Creative Commons Search• Google Images (labeled for reuse) Your own Digital Camera Scan photographs or artifacts
    76. 76. IV. Background Music• Freeplaymusic.com is a good starting point. If you purchase any music from iTunes, it is protected to the computer where you downloaded it when you purchased it.• You will need to burn any purchased song on a Music CD (with iTunes) and import the music directly from the CD.• Music often overwhelms voiceovers. Edit volume on the low end under your narration (> 10%) but you could increase the volume when no voice is present.
    77. 77. Step 8: Add Music• Choose music that evokes the rhythm and pace of your story.• Next, go out and grab the music in digital form: http://freeplaymusic.com Pod Safe Audio: http://www.podsafeaudio.com/ Jamendo http://www.jamendo.com/en/ (Free music downloads in MP3) http://creativecommons.org/legalmusicforvideos/ - Creative Commons Yahoo Music: http://new.music.yahoo.com/ http://www.archive.org/details/netlabels - Archive.org’s NetLabel Find a talented friend to play an original work on the piano or by strumming the guitar -- solves the copyright problem. Garage Band & Myna – create your own with loops http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    78. 78. Adjusting Volume in Audacity• Use the Envelope tool• Click on audio and drag down to lower volume
    79. 79. V. Rough edit• Place your narration (II), sound track (IV) and images (III) on the timeline in approximate locations. Ask for feedback. DEMO
    80. 80. Step 9: Edit Your Story (with video editing program)• Import all images, video, your voice-over, and musical elements• Lay your narration track onto the timeline first Add your images to match your narration Create an initial rough cut before adding transitions or special effects Add titles, transitions, special effects sparingly Expect to spend a few hours editing your story to get it just right. Dont overproduce: often the spontaneity and directness of the initial drafts get lost with too much polishing. http://www.techsoup.org/learningcenter/training/page5897.cfm
    81. 81. VIII. Publish• Save two versions of your file (File Menu -> Share): – QuickTime -> CD-ROM (and name it your “projectname”.mov) (which can be played from the CD) – QuickTime -> Web-Streaming (and name it your “projectnameweb”.mov) (which creates a version that can be posted to the WWW)
    82. 82. Websites to Share Video• YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/ TeacherTube: http://teachertube.com/ SchoolTube: http://schooltube.com/• Blip.tv: http://blip.tv Vimeo: http://www.vimeo.com/ Facebook video GoogleDocs/Google Drive
    83. 83. IX. Showtime! In a face-to-faceworkshop, watch the “big”version of your movie. In web workshop, uploadthe “small” version toWWW
    84. 84. Online Storage• You can also choose an online file storage system, such as the one that Ed uses: Microsoft Windows Live Sky Drive: http://skydrive.live.com• The advantage of this system is that you can store up to 25 GB of all types of files, and you can password-protect your files. I also like http://www.divshare.com/ to store files online, because they give you the code to embed your video into a blog or website (just like the video sharing sites). They let you store up to 5 GB of files.
