Digital storytelling

  1. 1. Today we are going to start working on a project that will end with the final product being a 'digital story'. Our story will be told in first person and will be one of the following topics: What Freedom Means to Me, My Hero, or My Bucket List.<br />In planning our digital story, we need to take a look at the elements required for a good digital story. Here is the basic format: (courtesy University of Houston, College of Education)<br />PART ONE: Pre-Production Phase – Define, Collect, Decide <br />Select a topic for your digital story. <br />Create a folder in your P drive where you can store the materials you find. <br />Search for image resources for your story, including: pictures, drawings, photographs, maps, charts, etc. - Save these resources in your folder. <br />Try to locate audio resources such as music, speeches, interviews, and sound effects. - Save these resources in your folder. <br />Try to find informational content, which might come from web sites, word processed documents, or PowerPoint slides. Save these resources in your folder. <br />Begin thinking of the purpose of your story. Are you trying to inform, convince, provoke, question? <br />PART TWO: Production Phase – Select, Import, Create <br />Select the images you would like to use for your digital story. <br />Select the audio you would like to use for your digital story. <br />Select the content and text you would like to use for your digital story. <br />Import images into digital storytelling tool (we will discuss this tomorrow). <br />Import audio into digital storytelling tool. <br />Modify number of images and/or image order, if necessary. <br />PART THREE: Post Production Phase – Decide, Write, Record, Finalize <br />Decide on the purpose and point of view of your digital story. <br />Write a script that will be used as narration in your digital story AND provides the purpose and point of view you have chosen. <br />Use a computer microphone and record the narration of your script. <br />Import the narration into digital storytelling tool. <br />Finalize your digital story by saving it as a Windows Media Video (.wmv) file or MP3/4 file. <br />PART FOUR: Distribution Phase – Sharing Your Story<br />Project Guidelines:<br />Your digital story (DS) must be 3 to 4 minutes in length. <br />All DS resources, images, documents, audio, etc., must be in the Digital Storytelling folder on your P drive. <br />Your DS must include at least one hand drawn image (you can use MSPaint, Adobe Illustrator, etc). <br />Your DS must be professional, factual and something you can be proud to show other people. <br />DS tools to use include – Audacity, Yodio, MovieMaker, Photo Story 3, JayCut, and others<br />Your DS must be in a format that will allow you to share with the world (.flv, .mp3, .mp4, .wmv, etc). <br />You must develop a storyboard that includes a script and a storyboard before you begin assembling your DS. These items must be approved by me. <br />Any audio, video, digital images used in your DS must comply with copyright law. (We will discuss this tomorrow.) <br />All audio, video, digital images must be renamed, if necessary, so that the media has a meaningful name. (We will talk about this too.) <br />You will receive multiple grades as we progress through this project. <br />ALL deadlines must be met. (We will discuss deadlines and final project presentation tomorrow.) <br />DS must include audio piece spoken by you. <br />DS must include at least one photo of you. <br />DS must include list of credits, resources, etc. at the end. <br />
