The Future of Storytelling

Comment by Michelle Birch on October 11, 2012 at 12:35pm

I'm currently a graduate assistant in Pace University's Academic Technology department. My background is in production and I'm very interested in our endeavors with Digital Storytelling. At Pace, faculty use the basics (iMovie, Movie Maker), are there any schools/universities that use advanced software such as Avid, Final Cut or other software for their digital stories?

I want to share how I use GlogsterEdu - Premium  for digital storytelling and project - based learning. I'm from Bulgaria and one day my colleague Bob Greenberg from Bridgeport, CT sent me a video on Skype where his second graders were telling the story about 'Borrowers" It was so cute, loved it for the first sight and thought it might be very useful  for my Bulgarian fourth graders to study the story and improve their their language  and basic key skills. I asked Bob about the script of the video. So I made a template glog and set up a project work to my students. They should make my glog personal in their stdents' accounts and do the tasks I had given. It was to listen and watch the story and 

 to put the sentences into right order. Also they would  work on the design of the glog if they wanted . They did the task perfectly and had fun studying English language and improving basic key skills on the computer.Here are their works:

I am finishing a master's degree in educational technology and had to do a digital story for one of the courses.  It was exhilarating.  I would love to learn more about free software.  Excited about joining.

I started by reading a book named "Digital Storytelling, A Creative Guide to Interactive Entertainment.". ISBN 978-0-240-80959-5. Now I have incorporated storytelling in my live classroom lectures and in my eLearning modules.

The book served me well. I would highly recommend it, and welcome anyone else's idea of a good book on this topic.

Hello! I am a third year elementary art teacher who is in love with the idea of digital storytelling! I would love to hear how it has been implemented in the younger grades (k-5).
