Your team will create a PowerPoint about the life and work of an Inventor or scientist movement that they present to the class and share beyond the classroom as a museum docent talk. The Inventor or scientist presentation may have embedded video, music and scanned images.
You must document (keep track of where you get your information.)
Create a PowerPoint to introduce the one best contribution of an inventor or scientist.
Select one photo of the inventor or scientist and key images from his or her career; organize them; add basic captions
and commentary about scientific concepts in notes; explain what
is unique about this inventor or scientist’s contribution. Present
to the group as a PowerPoint, and post on a class web site. Students can “read” about the different inventors or scientists and compare them.
You may create a short movie using Xtranormal text to movie http://www.xtranormal.com/ to imbed in the PowerPoint. It must be related to the inventor, scientist and his/her invention or scientific contribution.
Telling a story on your own is one kind of challenge. Telling a story with a group presents its
own opportunities and challenges. An empowering digital storytelling learning project typically
follows a cooperative creative learning process with the following phases:
Collect/sort/decide which ideas to pursue.
3. Select the project/story, and develop a plan to execute it using a 3x5 index card.
5. Select and distribute individual tasks that feed into the final outcome (such as directing
the project, doing interviews, researching images, and the initial drafting of text). For an
overview of the different roles in creating a movie idea.
7. Create a storyboard
8. Build the basic digital story.
11. Proof. Make sure that every word and every image is perfect so the audience can enjoy
12. Share (live and digitally). Post to your school’s web site.
