Digital Storytelling

Everyone has a story to tell! What’s yours?

Made with Padlet
Literary Basis

“Digital storytelling has emerged as a fundamental, cross-curricular technique that provides structure for both sharing and understanding new information. It has become an essential way of providing information and enhancing education…by making abstract or conceptual content more understandable. In all disciplines, it offers more ways to engage students and enrich learning through the inclusion of digital media that represents, illustrates, and demonstrates. Digital storytelling brings together text, graphics, audio, and video around a chosen theme, often with a specific point of view. Bernard Robin observes that a digital story may be a personal tale, a depiction of a historical event, or simply a way to creatively impart information or provide instruction. In the classroom, they can also foster collaboration when students are able to work in groups, and enhance the student experience through a personal sense of accomplishment (Robin, 2006). The National Council of Teachers of English in 2003, challenged teachers to develop instructional strategies for students to master composing in nonprint media that could include any combination of visual art, motion (video and film), graphics, text, and sound—all of which are frequently written and read in nonlinear fashion (Porter, 2008, p. 11). Included was the process of digital storytelling, where information is conveyed in a way that is more engaging than plain text.”     Strategies for digital communication skills across disciplines: The importance of digital stories (Links to an external site.)

Video in the Classroom

Close Reading with Media

Today’s learners do not get their information only from written text.  We learn from media as well.  Just like we look for the MAIN IDEA and DETAILS within a passage of text, we can do the same with images, audio, and video.  Key things to remember when using media  1) Use Short Segments  2) Use the pause and check for understanding.  3) If you can, turn on Close-Captioning.

Why Is Media So Important?

EXAMPLES:

Sources of Video for Learning

Make a Video to “Show What You Know”

Paper Slide Video

White Board Video

This is another simple video style you can use.  Sometimes these teachers use this technique to “flip” their lecture.  Recording what they might lecture about and assigning to the class as homework.  Instead of paper, students draw what they want to share on a small whiteboard as they narrate. If it takes too long to draw, students can speed up the video and re-record their narration as a voice-over.

Stop Motion Video

You don’t need a video camera to make a video to show what you know.  Start with a narrative script and instead of recording yourself you can use your own photos to tell your story.  Don’t have access to a camera at all? There are lots of free sources for images online.  Once you have your script and have found images to support what you say, you can use digital tools to put them together and record your narration.  Here are a few tutorials that show you how…

Make a Video Without a Video Camera
