  • 33. Documentaries <ul><li>Definition (from Bernajean Porter): </li></ul><ul><li>“ Documentaries are considered non-fiction organizing the complexity or multi-facets of a topic or person into a presentation that can reach many others. Documentaries craft complex topics into ideas and understandings accessible to others. They are either narrated or told in the actual words of the participants themselves (perhaps re-enacted dialogue) based on diaries, letters, journals, recordings and other artifacts.” </li></ul>NOT a summary report or listing of facts
  • 34. Docudramas <ul><li>Definition (from Bernajean Porter): </li></ul><ul><li>“ A docudrama blends melodrama and documentaries mostly through the use of fact-based reenactment or dramatization of actual people, places and events…Unlike documentaries, docudramas are generally constructed with a generous amount of reenactments or re-creations of reality rather than being confined to a narration of the primary source artifacts themselves. ” </li></ul><ul><li>http:// edcommunity.apple.com/ali/story.php?itemID =220 </li></ul>
  • 35. Resources <ul><li>For documentaries and docudramas you need primary sources like these: </li></ul><ul><li>http://nationalhistoryday.org/ResearchSources.htm </li></ul>
  • 36. Reports <ul><li>The listing of events, facts or recitation of data is not digital storytelling. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But it CAN be educational… and powerful. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>http://www.coe.uh.edu/digital-storytelling/gettysburg.htm </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.coe.uh.edu/digital-storytelling/fingerprints.htm </li></ul>
