    1. 1. Digital Storytelling EDPC605

    3. 3. Digital Storytelling • Digital Storytelling refers to using new digital tools to help ordinary people to tell their own stories • The product is a 2-5 minute film that combines a narrated piece of writing, photographic images and a musical soundtrack. The philosophy behind this type of digital storytelling is one of using technology to enable those without a technical background to produce works that tell a story using moving images and sound.
    4. 4. What is Digital Storytelling? • Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Digital stories derive their power by weaving images, music, narrative and voice together, thereby giving deep dimension and vivid color to characters, situations, experiences and insights.
    5. 5. “A story should be remembered for its soul, not the bells and whistles”. If you don’t have a good or powerful story, script, and storyboard, then there will never be enough decorating that technology can do to cover it up. On the other hand, demonstrating exemplar craftsmanship with mixing the technical elements in artful ways to unfold your story creates compelling, insightful, original and memorable pieces of communication. The richness of a good story can be diluted when technical elements are over used, distracting, or just plain annoying.
    6. 6. The 7 Elements of Storytelling • Point of View – What is the main point of the story and what is the perspective of the author? • A Dramatic Question - A key question that keeps the viewer's attention and will be answered by the end of the story. • Emotional Content -Serious issues that come alive in a personal and powerful way and connects the story to the audience. • The Gift of Your Voice - A way to personalize the story to help the audience understand the context. • The Power of the Soundtrack - Music or other sounds that support and embellish the storyline. • Economy - Using just enough content to tell the story without overloading the viewer. • Pacing - The rhythm of the story and how slowly or quickly it progresses.

    12. 12. Copyright Discussion • • • • • • • Intellectual property violations are legal concerns and include copyright infringement or trademark violation. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY covers “the properties generated by thought processes, creativity, and organizational capabilities of individuals and legal entities which are fixed in a tangible form” (Caseiro,2000, p.18). There are four kinds of intellectual property. We are most concerned with Copyrights and Trademarks in entries. COPYRIGHT: First, think simply: If you did not write it, draw it, or produce the .gif or applet, etc….then you need to pay close attention to what is OK legally. Copyright means “Original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression “(Caseiro,2000, p.20) “Copyright” means that the author or artist or software developer claims protection for the expression of original work they did. They have the right to have their work used for pay or with permission, and their work cannot be used without permission. You can see this symbol: © on a work protected with a copyright. One Frequently Asked Question is worth answering for all of you: “If something I see says “For Educational Use” or “For Personal Use”, can I use it on my site?” The answer is NO. When you publish on the web, you publish for the whole world. “Educational use” means IN A CLASSROOM. “Personal Use” means for your private use.These are tough ideas to think about.
