useful web sites for digital story telling
Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between two and ten minutes. The topics that are used in Digital Storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one's own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between. A great way to begin learning about Digital Storytelling is by watching the following video introduction to Digital Storytelling.
Educational Uses of Digital Story Telling
Course Assignments - A digital story can be an effective assignment in nearly any course in nearly any discipline that requires a major project or presentation. Examples:
Real world online case scenarios - The cases, guiding students through patient assessment and treatment, require students to actively think about the practical relevance of the basic sciences and apply them to the real world situation. Each student is assigned to work through a case and has the opportunity to see what other students are working through and how knowledge of basic sciences are applied to solve other real world problems.
Learning Object - One professor developed a digital story called The Look in which he explained the concept of Science Fiction; another developed one to teach the themes and symbolism in All Quiet on the Western Front.
Teaching Portfolio - A digital story uses multimedia to bring alive faculty's best practices in teaching.
Research Projects - Digital stories can convey complex concepts in an accessible manner. Grant-funded projects with websites that feature digital stories about the research can attract additional funding, student participants, other members of the research community, etc.
Undergraduate Research - Students involved in undergraduate research can develop digital stories to reflect on their research experience and/or present key findings.
Student Reflection - Students can develop stories to recount their experiences collaborating with peers and developing projects during their studies, or ponder their future as they get ready to graduate.
Course Project - Currently, students studying journalism and biology are working with their professors to develop various types of digital stories.
Portfolio Piece - Students develop a presentation in this dynamic medium to show potential employers or to submit with a graduate school application.
Co-op, Study Abroad or Experiential Education Reflection - Students can complete digital stories as a required assignment for experiential education programs. The stories can serve as a portfolio piece for the students and a marketing piece for these programs to attract students.
