    2. 2. E-learning and Literacy Using Digital Storytelling in the classroom
    3. 3. Defining e-learning = electronic learning type of technology supported learning where the medium is through ICTs, particularly digital technologies is interchangeable in a wide variety of contexts defined as the pedagogy empowered by digital technology Marilyn Small
    4. 4. Elearning and literacy What are your current understandings, experience, integration? There are many different definitions of quot;digital storytelling,quot; - what is yours? Marilyn Small
    5. 5. What will elearning and literacy look like? Anything! The scope is enormous and the integration can be about anything that is meaningful to the context. Education Reflective learning…..Inquiry Family, visits, relations, pets, special events, experiences, learning, music…. The digital story could be related to a unit of work. Eg Grandparents… Marilyn Small
    6. 6. Origins of Digital Stories Stories have been told for generations. Started around the campfires…now moved to ipods. New Zealand Stories: Maori Legends Nursery Rhymes Famous People adventures Family Tales that are passed down through the generations Marilyn Small
    7. 7. “Stories” If Stories are the large and small instruments of meaning, of explanation, that we store in our memories. How can we use this within literacy to better engage and motivate our students? Marilyn Small
    8. 8. Character Stories: How we are inspired by, want to recognise, finding meaning in our relationship to: Another person or even a pet. Tell us more about ourselves……. Marilyn Small
    9. 9. Memorial Stories Honouring and remembering people who have passed is an essential part of grieving. The most difficult and painful to produce = powerful results. Marilyn Small
    10. 10. Adventure Stories Accomplishment stories Achieving a goal (Link to learning) Desire/struggle/realisation/classic story Tend to be documentary style. What was the event? What was your relationship? With what other people did you experience? How did you feel? Why did you learn from this event? How did this event change your life? Marilyn Small
    11. 11. The Story about a place in my life. Prior to 1900, 90% of the worlds population was born, lived and died in a 16km radius. Our sense of place is the basis of many profound stories. There’s no place like home! What is your mountain? A sense of belonging… Marilyn Small
    12. 12. The Story about a Place in my life. Your home, town, park, mountain, forest you love or even a restaurant or bar. How would you describe the place? With whom did you share this place? What general experiences do you relate to this place? Was there a defining experience at the place? What lessons about yourself do you draw from your relationship to this place? If you have returned to this place how has it changed? Marilyn Small
    13. 13. The Story about what you do Many peoples life story is shaped by their jobs. What is your profession or interest? What experiences, interests, knowledge in your previous life prepared you for this activity? Was there an initial event that most affected your decision to pursue this interest? Who influenced you in your career? How has your profession affected your life as a whole? (family, friends, location) What has been the highlight of your vocation? Marilyn Small
    14. 14. Discovery Stories Process of learning. Pleasure in illustrating how we uncovered the facts to get at the truth. Documenting a child’s learning…..powerful Whether fixing a bicycle or inventing a new product. Marilyn Small
    15. 15. So get started….. Storytelling is an open field…go for it… Categories are in no way sacrosanct. Stories ask ourselves to reveal things that make us feel vunerable so it is a procrastinators paradise……. Start collecting your artefacts…. Marilyn Small

    21. 21. The Power of the Soundtrack We are all experts in our favourite music. Select the music carefully to suit your theme Instrumental music be it classical, folk or jazz is often suited better to a digital story. Combination of a voice and music sound track is powerful. Marilyn Small
    22. 22. Economy Concern is with sequential composition. Closure: recognising the pattern of information being shown or described to us in bits and pieces and completing the pattern in our minds. Be economic with the numbers of photos and words….be succinct Marilyn Small
    23. 23. Pacing The true secret of storytelling. (check out our comedians!) Rhythm of a story maintains interest Changing pace is effective Good stories breathe…even pace… then fast…then slow Trust your own sense of what works… Marilyn Small
    24. 24. Timing…. A two to five minute story is about right….(3 min is ideal) Digital stories often start with the pictures…lay them out…script them Talk with others, bounce ideas, use the story circle Marilyn Small
    25. 25. Storyboarding A storyboard is a place to plan out a visual story in two dimensions Time: what happens first, next and so on. Interaction: how does the audio, voice over, music interact with images. Visual effects: what transitions, animations, zoom effects be used. Marilyn Small
