  15. 15. Digital Stories Whether fact, fiction or fantasy; 'Comic Strip' tools are a great way to introduce digital storytelling Why not let pupils use CC licenced images to inspire their creative work?
  16. 16. Using still images in conjunction with audio and motion (Ken Burns effect) has a very powerful impact on audiences, and is easily achievable in school these days. Here are two interpretations of the song Pretty Saro, one by filmmaker Jennifer Lebeau with Bob Dylan’s version, the other by Tim Riordan uses an openly licenced version of the song by Piers Cawley. Both use examples use the 1930s - 40s images from the US Library of Congress on Flickr Commons. Digital Narratives
  17. 17. Use open images to illustrate books for example - childrens stories Illustration Credit, Ideas and Images; Zoe Toft: http://www.playingbythebook.net/2014/03/18/barbapapas-new-house-a-book-so- good-im-featuring-it-for-a-second-time/
  18. 18. Create inspirational or motivational posters, add poems or quotes, using Canva or similar online design tools Graphic Design
  19. 19. Add interactive (hypertext) notes and comments to any online images or video you discover or upload. Link to information from Wikipedia, YouTube. Hyperlink images to to create a digital story. Ask visitors to add notes, fill in missing information, for example faces, signs or objects. Of course these kind of open tools could lend themselves to ‘mischief making’........ Annotated Images Link
  20. 20. Many of the B&W photographs and illustrations from the BL digital collection on Flickr can be considered suitable for hand colouring The example here used a free online browser based photo-editing software to try and recreate the ‘traditional’ hand coloured look. However one could take a much more radical approach with some of the Hand Colouring old photographs
  21. 21. Quizzes Google Doc (forms) make it easy to create unique, engaging quizzes and surveys with free and open images and video
  22. 22. Mapping The British Library collection is a goldmine for maps, and cartography related content. Here a map of Rome from the British Library has been overlaid on Google Earth as a layer,
  23. 23. Using a collaborative online mind map to analyse an image, You can add ideas here: https://mm.tt/404379984?t=IyYVFM9KQq Analysis and Visualisation
  24. 24. Combining today’s simple digital cameras, mobile devices with the availability of historic images and easy to use editing software (including online tools) we have a great opportunity to bring past and present together in video formats. Here is a remarkable example of a Then and Now video mixing contemporary footage with the work of the 1920s, cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene.

  25. 25. There are a number of excellent online timeline creation tools available. TimeLine JS (top) requires some spreadsheet data skills and computational knowledge is useful http://timeline.knightlab.com/ Histropedia links to articles in Wikipedia & social media create events on a timeline on the ‘fly’ http://www.histropedia.com/ Both are free and open collaborative projects.
