Digital Storytelling 101

This week we learned about Digital Storytelling in our Tech Class. Digital storytelling is different from traditional storytelling in that you are able to utilize different tech tools to convey a message, tell a story, or explain a concept. Have a look a that video below to learn more about Digital Storytelling.

The great thing about Digital Storytelling is that it does not require a whole lot of equipment. All you need to get started is:

1. A computer
2. Video Editing Software
3. A microphone 
4. A digital camera or flip camera 
5. A Storyboard 

We are excited about taking part in our own Digital Storytelling Projects this summer. Our project will focus on the theme, Dream Big. Students have the option of narrating a story, sharing a poem or song, or acting out their dreams for themselves, their communities, or their world. Our students have worked very hard on their storyboards to help them map out their videos. Next week, we'll be putting all the pieces together by adding some pictures and footage. Stay tuned for more!
