We created this thread as a place to post digital storytelling resources and examples. Share any resources or digital storytelling examples that you, your colleagues, or your students created. We would love to see tons of examples and hear about the tools/resources you used to create your stories. Feel free to share a link, upload a file, or embed a video here in the thread.
Be creative and Tell US Your STORY.
Hi Vanessa, I'm sure you know of Sylvia Tolisano aka Langwitches. She is enthusiastic about digital storytelling (amongst many other e-activities). Here is a link to her blog archive on Digital Storytelling.
I am quite sure these may have been mentioned in previous posts, nevertheless I find them very helpful in preparing for my digital storytelling workshops:
Jennifer Dorman's Wiki- full of resources and links
David Jake's Site
Dr. Arnie Abram's Site- Great quick tips
And of course, Digitales by Bernajean Porter- http://www.digitales.us/
A tool my 3-5 school uses is VoiceThread, more specifically ed.voicethread which is the educators version. We have used it to discuss books by an author and illustrator whom we skyped with, math digital stories, literature stories and research. I've added a few examples below. My favorite is the first one in the list. We usually have an Author's Tea to share and celebrate when a VoiceThread is finished. Students invite admin, other classrooms, and their parents.
The Life and Times of Harriet Tubman by 3rd graders. They illustrated the events in her life and used SMART Notebook for creating the pages. The notebook software gave students more features to use in their drawings.
I am working with our Dance Teacher at this time in creating a VT with pictures of movements students did in dance to go along with poems they wrote.
Love the Author's Tea and all the other examples. I haven't seen any examples using dance with Voicethread. I can't wait to see those examples. I've added Voicethread to our list of ST Live webinars. It would be great to share some of the great resources in this thread as well as have a live demo. Naomi also mentioned Voicethread in another post.
My English I Class is Skyping with a class from New York about a book that we are reading that is set in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. We created some PhotoPeach movies to introduce them to our city.
Here are some videos from class
From various Intel Teach programs we are all familiar with the revised version of Bloom's Taxonomy. Check out the revised version of Blooms with a digital twist: Bloom's Taxonomy Blooms Digitally published in an article in Tech&Learning. Looking at the Bloom's digital taxonomy map which verbs do you use more often when creating/implementing digital stories in your classroom?
Vanessa, I love the Bloom's digital taxonomy map. I was in a learning team at our school the other day and we were trying to come up with verbs that were related to the digital content we produce. And, wow, here it is. I've already sent the link to the team.
I immediately see the verbs animating, blogging, publishing, wiki-ing, commenting, MODERATING, collaborating, networking, and tagging from the higher end. Now, to carry it one step further...what products do you think of for each of the key terms?
