Filed under: Digital Storytelling
Inspired by the digital storytelling work of Wes Fryer and Dean Shareski - and the four slide contest recently hosted by Dan Myer, I decided to start the year off by having my students create a four slide digital storytelling project focusing on the idea of a ‘sequence of events.’ This project was completed as part of an initial digital storytelling effort. Students were directed to describe a process they have gone through in their lives – breaking it up into four sections with each one represented by a single image.
Getting each student up and running with a yahoo.com email account was a challenge, as we spent a great deal of time discussing and implementing Internet safety procedures. Consequently, my middle schoolers now appear online with yahoo.com and gmail.com email accounts as a bunch of 65 year olds living in strange places like Chickenfeed, FL!
I loved this project, and have to say that watching how much my kids got out of it really energized me. I can honestly say that these past few weeks mark the first time in my brief four year teaching career that students literally had to be forced out of my class because they were having so much fun!
Below, you will find entries from a few select students who were kind enough to share them. I hope you enjoy! (Loaded into and shared via Bubbleshare)
