Transcript

  • 1. First steps: Create your own digital story  Learn how to use the equipment and tools that your students will be using  Get a feel for the processes and steps involved in digital storytelling Plan the project: objectives, timeline, equipment, resources (volunteer support, equipment, internet access) Create a unit plan, gather materials (handouts, models) The more volunteer support you can have in the class, the better! Plan for students finishing at different times – must be flexible and prepared with other learning activities for Ss who complete the task quickly (or insist on working on it on their home computer)
  • 2. In the classroom Take time to introduce students to digital storytelling: concept, purpose, project goal, steps (see my sample PPT presentations) story  photos + images + oral narration  digital story: Ensure Ss are focused on creating a good written story before moving on to the digital part of the project don’t rush the process of story creation and oral storytelling practice – lots of opportunities for peer editing/feedback, self- editing, pronunciation work The two times I have done digital storytelling with ESL classes, I have spread the project out over a month. Students worked in- class and at home on different tasks.
  • 3. Steps to Making a Digital Story 1) Think about 2) Choose a story ideas: ‘What’s my 3) Write a first draft idea & focus story?’ 5) Find 6) Make a (take, collect, draw) 4) Edit and rewrite storyboard (an pictures to go with story example on paper) the story 8) Make digital story on a computer: 9) Save or post 7) Record your story photos + recorded digital story story
  • 4. The most challenging parts: The equipment: one laptop per student, reliable and fast internet access, scanner, is the software same or different? Copyright issues – think this through and do work with the students on this before you get students gathering images and music for their story Putting all of the elements together into a digital story: for students who are new to iMovie, MovieMaker, Voicethread, or whatever tool you’re using to create the story, they will need to learn how to use it. Some students will need a lot of time and support, while others don’t need any Moving students through the project on the same timeline
  • 5. A few tips: Make sure… you have enough support in the classroom depending on your Ss’ levels of digital literacy shorter stories = an easier (to make) digital story (see KirstyMcGeoch’s ‘1-minute stories) the equipment you need is available and plentiful, and that you’re comfortable using it. create a digital story as a make your whole class own digital story use your tech- savvy Ss as helpers/resourc es
  • 6. How else can digital storytelling be used with ESL learners? narrow the focus/topic: an end of term project (‘what I’ve learned this term’) whole class or small groups: create a digital story based on a common experience (party/celebration, field trip) students can create a ‘commercial’ to advertise a product, or their class…(see the VCC ELSA Youth coffee commercial!) using written journal entries as a springboard to a digital story
