Students will use a storyboard to help choose images, objects, and place to film that will enhance the message in their story.
Begin by having students re-read the story they wrote in the last session. Ask them to then close their eye and think about what the story might LOOK like. They should make a quick list of ideas that came to mind in their journals.
As a class discuss how images help enhance a story. You may choose to play another digital story from Cybersmart!?s Digital Storytelling Initiative, but only allow the students to hear the audio. Then play it again, allow students to see the images and hear the audio.
Refer students to the storyboard in their Storytelling Journals.
Share some tips with students about how to choose appropriate images for the story. The tips are highlighted on the storyboard.
Remind students that finished products (digital stories) will be 2-3 minutes in length.
Allow students time to work on the storyboards.
1.?Discuss with your ePal how images can be important in a digital story. Tell your ePal some of the ideas you had about how to make your story better with images.
2.?Was it difficult or easy to figure out how to use a storyboard? Do you think a storyboard is helpful when creating a digital story? Why or why not?
