This workshop will cover how to create a digital story, providing participants with an overview of how the process adds value to learning, engages students, teaches 21st Century skills, and can be a great assessment tool for student mastery of content knowledge. Through the process of recording media or finding it online, students have access to a variety or cheap and free tools to produce media. This workshop will introduce that process and those tools that makes digital storytelling a viable option for student projects. Participants will learn the production process by creating a digital story. They will learn how to brainstorm, come up with a synopsis, write a script, storyboard, collect visual material, record audio narration, edit the project, and share with the community.
We will focus some of the workshop looking at some basic guidelines for using found footage in digital stories and the proper protocols for doing online research. To produce media, students need to be critical interpreters of online material - both understanding whether the content is relevant/useful, and if the nature of its use complies with commonly shared fair use guidelines. This workshop will investigate some great resources for educators and students to understand the complexities of fair use and creative commons licensing.
Participants should come away with an understanding of how to create digital stories and what types of challenges and opportunities it can have in academia. At the end, participants will have time for Q and A as well as learn some common tips for assigning digital stories to their students.
Workshop will take place in Room 213 on the 2nd Floor of the Library.
