Notas do Editor

  • “Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Throughout history, storytelling has been used to share knowledge, wisdom, and values. Stories have taken many different forms. Stories have been adapted to each successive medium that has emerged, from the circle of the campfire to the silver screen, and now the computer screen.”
    – The Digital Storytelling Association
  • Media is the plural of medium.
    Medium is the information that is communicated between the giver and receiver.
  • Stories are instruments of learning
    Digital Storytelling is another medium that can be used to provide your students with information. It can be just as academic rigorous as a research paper.
    Reading from the textbook and reviewing Power Point presentations that summarize your textbook are not always sufficient.
    Digital stories can highlight an important event and/or topic; they can engage students in a way that will leave a lasting impression.
    Promote academic standards- effective strategy to learn science, arts, humanities, social sciences, promote multicultural perspectives.
    Provides 21 century skills: Research Skills, Writing, Presentation Skills, Problem-Solving and Creative Thinking Skills

  • Developing your Digital Story
    Pre-writing: brainstorming, collecting images, researching, outlining, and storyboarding
    Drafting: creating a script … what comes 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc…..
    Revising: modifying images and organization
    Editing: timing, images, and narration
    Publishing: the final product
  • Get together thoughts that share beliefs, feelings… these all make a good story!
    Make an outline
    Gather photos
    Review videos
    Create a visual narrative
    Will the voice/narrative enhance or detract from the story?
    Sounds can give the story rhythm and character

  • PRINCIPLE:  Under fair use, educators using the concepts and techniques of media literacy can integrate copyrighted material into curriculum materials, including books, workbooks, podcasts, DVD compilations, videos, Web sites, and other materials designed for learning.
    LIMITATIONS:  Wherever possible, educators should provide attribution for quoted material, and of course they should use only what is necessary for the educational goal or purpose. The materials should meet professional standards for curriculum development, with clearly stated educational objectives, a description of instructional practices, assignments, and assessment criteria.
  • The free, open-source program Audacity can capture sound from either a computer's built-in mike or an external microphone.
    Audacity records voice files from a microphone.
    You can use a headphone microphone or a handheld microphone that is connected via USB port.
    After you use Audacity to record voice, it saves as an Audacity project file (.aup)
    The .aup file needs to be converted to an .mp3 file or “exported” using the LAME MP3 Encoder software that can be downloaded for free and works inside Audacity.
    .mp3 files can only be linked in a PPT, and not embedded (so this means if you are inserting a .mp3 file in a PowerPoint, and emailing the PPT, they person receiving that PPT will not have the sound…) There is a free converter to use to embed music files in PPT called CDex http://sourceforge.net/projects/cdexos/
    The technique is to add a header to the .mp3 file that will convince PowerPoint that it is actually a wav file. Too technical to explain it here, but willing to do so in another workshop.

    PC Sound Recorder - – found from the Start Menu/All Programs/ Accessories /Entertainment /Sound Recorder
    (Record your voice using a microphone.
    Use the record button and stop button.
    Save the file. This sound recorder will save in the .wav format.
    .wav files can be embedded, however .wav file format is a large file size and makes huge PPT files
    .wav files can be embedded and shared more easily.
    Consider converting a .wav file to a .MP3 file format to reduce the file size

    Next, go out and grab the music in digital form: Use a high-quality mp3 or rip a track from a favorite CD with one of the dozens of free CD-ripper programs on the market. (I prefer Windows Media Player.) To rip a track off a CD follow these steps:
    Put in favorite music CD in CD drive
    Open up Windows Media Player
    On the menu bar, click on Rip
    Choose “Format” mp3
    Choose “More Options” , then change the location of where you want to save your file
    Make a choice to Rip CD when inserted or only in the Rip tab
    Click OK
    Then select the track you want ripped to mp3 and viola!
    The mp3 file appears in your destination folder!

    Or use original music recorded by students singing. Next, import the track into your video-editing program.

  • Point of View: All stories are told to make a point. What message are you trying to convey? What is the theme of the story?
    Dramatic Question: a good story has a hook to draw in the audience.
    Emotional Content: providing emotion provides interest
    Economy: Use the least amount of images to tell the story. Selection of images should illustrate the theme without being a distraction. Too many images can confuse the audience.
    Pacing: Use pauses, regulate tempo, speed of the story. The change in pace draws interest, allows the audience to think and reflect
    Voice: Use voice to tell the story: Tone: Slow, Fast, Loud, Soft Pitch: Vary to add emotion
    Soundtrack: Music sets the mood and enhances the story
