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)
