Go to the Padlet link to answer the questions please. What are digital stories? Digital Stories are multimedia movies that combine photographs, video, animation, sound, music, text, and often a narrative voice. How are they used in the classroom? Digital stories may be used as an expressive medium within the classroom to integrate

subject matter with extant knowledge and skills from across the curriculum. How can students work on digital stories? Students can work individually or collaboratively to produce their own digital stories. How can students share their stories with others ? Once completed, these stories are easily be uploaded to the

internet and can be made available to an international audience, depending on the topic and purpose of the project. Multimodal Literacy Multimodal Literacy refers to meaning-making that occurs through the reading, viewing, understanding, responding to and producing and interacting with multimedia and digital texts. It may include oral and gestural modes of talking, listening and dramatizing as well as writing, designing and producing such texts. The processing of modes, such as image, words, sound and movement within texts can occur simultaneously and is often cohesive and

synchronous. Seven effective elements for digital Stories Step 1 Point of view Step 2 Dramatic Question Step 3 Emotional Element Step 6

Economy Step 4 The Gift of your Voice Step 7 Pacing Step 5 The Power of the Soundtrac k Seven Elements 1.Point of View

All stories make a point. They follow the pattern of describing a desire, a need, or a problem that must be addressed by a central character (you).They follow the action. The desire leads us to take, and then reveal realizations. 2.Dramatic Question Well-crafted stories, from Shakespeare to Star Wars, set up a tension from the beginning that holds you.

In a romance, will the girl get the guy? In an adventure, will the hero reach the goal? In a crime or murder mystery, who did it? Seven Elements 3.Emotional Content This effect is principally a result of a truthful approach to emotional materials. To understand story's role in our lives is to think of most stories

as resurrection tales. Every one of us has to wake up in the morning, and choose to go on, to resurrect ourselves in the face of fate and circumstance, the memory of loss and almost unbearable struggle. 4.The Gift of your Voice Those of us fortunate enough to be able to talk out loud should love our voices, because they tell everyone so much about who we are, both how strong we can be and how fragile.

In a story, we are listening for an organic rhythmic pattern that allows us to float into reverie. The easiest way to improve upon a [spoken from script] recording of your voice is to keep the writing terse. Record several takes of the text. Work at speaking slowly in a conversational style. Seven Elements 5.The Power of the Soundtrack People now walk around with soundtracks running in

their heads, a movie that puts our life into a clearer perspective, or at least entertains us. Instrumental music or ambient sound is often better suited to the style and meaning of the story's text and visual narratives. 6. Economy Most people do not realize that the story they have to tell can be effectively illustrated with a small number of images and

video, and a relatively short text. Storytelling with images means consciously economizing language in relationship to the narrative that is provided by the images Seven Elements 7.Pacing Considered by many to be the true secret of successful storytelling. Changing pace, even in a short digital story, is very effective. Good stories breathe. They move along generally at an even pace, but once in a while they stop. They take a deep breath and proceed. Or if the story calls for it they walk a little faster,

and faster until they are running, but sooner or later they have to run out of breath and stop and wheeze at the side of the road. Digital Story Telling in the Classrom Digital storytelling can be used in the classroom in a myriad of ways. Telling personal stories helps students learn about voice in a narrative form, as well as first person perspective. Since modern communication involves writing with pictures and music, having students create digital stories helps them build these skills.

You can also use digital storytelling to address curriculum areas beyond language arts and media literacy. For example, students can retell an event from the life of a famous person they are studying to help us understand why this person acted the way they did. Younger students can become an animal and discuss habitat,

food, predation, and other life cycle issues. How TO ?
