  • 1. Digital Stories Using Microsoft Photo Story 3 for Windows Carrie Roth [email_address] (248) 865-6643
  • 2. Digital Stories
    • This is the part that will take your team the longest, so reserve the majority of your time for planning. Once you have this prepared, digitizing should go very quickly!
    • You will want to get yourself prepared before diving into Digital Stories.
    • Here are some helpful tips!
    • Call Neil if you are going to use your teacher computer, he will come and download the program for you!
    • Place all of your evidence, pictures and images/scans of your documents, into one folder. Take the time to name them exactly what they are. (Example: students working on mission statements, 3 rd grade student samples of personal narrative writing…)
    • Create a simple story board of how you want your story to flow. What will come first, and then so on and so on.
    • If you are going to have narration, write out a script!
    • If you are going to use music, think about the mood you want to set.
    • Prior to downloading the program, you will need to install Windows Media Player 10 (also a free download from the same website)
  • 3. Digital Stories
    • STEP 1 Download the Program
      • Go to this website
      • Or Google “Photo Story”

      • Save blank power point slides with simple backgrounds (your school photo as a watermark, simple solid colors…) to add more text rich slides.
  • 11. Digital Stories
    • The next option is to add Narration to your story. I suggest you save this until the very end. So skip to the next option.
    • You can also customize the motion of your slides. This take a little bit of finesse and time. It can add a lot of pizzazz to your story, but is very time consuming.
  • 12. Digital Story
    • Finally add some music.
    • Don’t break the law!
      • Remember copyright laws. Don’t download music and add it to your story!
    • Select Create Music and have some fun!

    • your story

    • This takes a while, so be sure not to work on anything else while it is running! Enjoy a cup of coffee…don’t touch your computer!
    • Enjoy your java while you watch
    • your story play before your
    • eyes!
    • Call me if something did not work! 
