  3. 3. <ul><li>“ Today, students have many options for communication ranging from instant messaging to blogging to podcasting. Whatever the medium, our students have important stories that need telling. </li></ul><ul><li>Digital storytelling helps students explore the meaning of their own experience, give value to it, and communicate that experience on multiple levels to others. An educational experience that includes digital storytelling not only promotes the development of life-long learners, but life-long communicators as well. ” </li></ul>

  5. 5. <ul><li>The process of digital storytelling can be broken into a series of steps. </li></ul><ul><li>Following these steps will help ensure that a successful experience will be </li></ul><ul><li>provided. The end goal of this process is to complete a digital story between </li></ul><ul><li>2-3 minutes in length that is composed of about 20-25 images and has a </li></ul><ul><li>script length of about one page, double-spaced. Steps 1-3 are done in the </li></ul><ul><li>classroom before a student even uses a computer, steps 4 and 5 are done in a </li></ul><ul><li>computer lab, and step 6 can occur back in the classroom or any other venue, </li></ul><ul><li>including online. </li></ul><ul><li>- David S. Jakes </li></ul><ul><li>Step 1: Write a narrative, choose a theme Step 4: Assemble multimedia </li></ul><ul><li>Step 2: Develop the script Step 5: Create/edit the digital story </li></ul><ul><li>Step 3: Create a storyboard Step 6: Share the finished product </li></ul>
  6. 7. “ An essential question: provokes deep thought. solicits information-gathering and evaluation of data. results in an original answer, helps students conduct problem-related research. makes students produce original ideas rather than predetermined answers. may not have an answer. encourages critical thinking not just memorization of facts.” ( A simple example of an Essential Question would be… Why do teens engage in “sexting” and what should the penalty for that be? or In what ways are teens helped by the Internet and how are they potentially hurt by it? Now, let’s look at Essential Questions specifically about Digital Storytelling.
  7. 8. “ This potent combination of narrative and imagery…&quot;digital storytelling,&quot; humanizes factual statistics, giving them real meaning. And so rather than having students robotically regurgitate dates, or rush through an essay for a single reader, we are asking students to dive deep into their topic, discover the most compelling narrative elements, strategize how their message can best be conveyed through video, and convincingly show a public audience why we should care. Thus, the students become more than the experts; they become the teachers.” - Aaron M. Smith
  8. 9. <ul><li>This may see like an intimidating task, but the learning process involved is </li></ul><ul><li>multi-layered, collaborative, and often times, enjoyable. </li></ul><ul><li>Indeed, with user-friendly equipment (flip cams, iMovie, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>students quickly learn how to shoot and edit moving images. </li></ul><ul><li>The real problem occurs on a more abstract level - how to </li></ul><ul><li>conceptually develop an engaging video narrative. This issue </li></ul><ul><li>deserves significant attention. </li></ul><ul><li>Just as students need to be able to string together sentences in a coherent </li></ul><ul><li>fashion, they need to be able to organize multimedia content meaningfully, </li></ul><ul><li>especially now. </li></ul>
  9. 10. The seven elements of digital storytelling Point of view: Outlines the point of the story and the perspective from which the story is told. A dramatic question: Sets the tension of the story by identifying issues to be resolved. Emotional content: Engages the audience through common emotions and themes (love, pain, humor). The gift of your voice: Helps the audience make meaning of images. The power of the soundtrack: Sets the mood of the story. Economy: Balances the auditory and visual tracks of meaning. Pacing: Sustains the attention of the audience by establishing and modifying the rhythm of the story. Adapted from Lambert (2006) “ The medium of digital storytelling offers tremendous opportunities for teachers to engage and assess students. By integrating visual images with written text, digital stories can be used to enhance and accelerate student comprehension (Burmark, 2004; Robin, 2008). “ “ When creating their own digital stories, students encounter an integrated instructional activity that requires them to leverage a host of cognitive, interpersonal, organizational and technical skills (National Middle School Association [NMSA], 2010; Robin, 2008).”
