Lesson Objective

Defining digital storytelling and correlating this tool with the common core standards.

Lesson Plan

Digital storytelling refers to a short form of digital media production that allows students to intertwine words and/or visual and/or music to tell a story from his or her point of view.  "Media" may include the digital equivalent of film techniques (full-motion video with sound), animation, stills, audio only, or any of the other forms of non-physical media (material that exists only as electronic files as opposed to actual paintings or photographs on paper, sounds stored on tape or disc, movies stored on film) which individuals can use to tell a story or present an idea.

In order to create a digital story using Photo Story 3 you must first download the software on to your computer. The software is free but besure to have it installed before you begin.

You will also need a microphone which is usually already built-in to most laptops. If not I would recommend using a head set with a microphone because in either case this equipment allows for a clearer voice with less background noise.

The last thing is the visuals, you can use photographs or actual pictures that you create yourself. If a student wants to draw a picture with pencils and crayons they will have to be scanned and then imported into the software.
