Digital Storytelling

I’ve come across some excellent resources tonight for teaching digital storytelling.

Memory’s Voices is the website for The Center for Digital Storytelling.  When I visited the site the sample stories weren’t working, but the Digital Storytelling Cookbook is a great resource.

A great introduction to why we tell stories can be found on the Call of Story website.  The site is geared more towrds a revivial of verbal, live storytelling, but the information about storytelling in general is great to get new digital storytellers thinking.

I also found great materials on this website made by Kevin Hodgson for the Western Massachusetts Writing Project.  The site includes a detailed tutorial on how to use MovieMaker to make a digital story, sample storyboards, an assessment marking rubric, and more.

And amongst all this I had to go back to the Capture Wales site, just to watch a few more of their digital stories!  The ‘BBC – Telling Lives‘ page is also a great source of digital stories.

    Hi Kelli,

    I could listen to and watch any digistory created by Daniel Meadows over and over! Such a fan – and now the faculty is too!! We are starting off our love affair with DigiStories through asking our Yr 12 2009 students to create their ‘Place of Belonging’ digistory at the beginning of next term.
    We are holding ‘How to create a DigiStory’ workshops during that dreaded period between next week and the end of Term 3 – when Yr 11 is technically over and HSC has not yet begun! The perfect time to get them on board with a gorgeous literary artform! Thanks to Daniel Meadows, all teachers – ‘web immigrants’ or ‘natives’ – have access to step by step instructions. Thanks for those websites you have mentioned, I will have to check them out for further assistance! I’ll let you know how it goes – very excited!
