How does the use of dynamic media change the story?

Why is it important for students to learn how to communicate through digital storytelling?

  • Students already use digital media. This is an opportunity to reinforce some of the basic standards.
  • We revisit the ideas of voice and narrative. We emphasize digital citizenship by requiring citation of sources.

How does the use of dynamic media change the story?

  • When silent movies got sound – the story changed
  • When color came to the cinema – the story changed
  • When hypertext came into the main stream – the story changed again.
  • One can only hope that dynamic media will change storytelling for the better. It will make it more engaging, more vivid.

Digital Story for Yearbook

I created a digital story project for my yearbook class. Here is my first attempt at walking the walk. I will be sharing this with my students so I can point out what worked well and what didn’t.
