Animoto

The easy way to create and share extraordinary videos of your life. Our online video maker turns your photos, video clips and music into video in minutes.
Alida Bonotto's insight:

To make better use of this application you will need to go onto one of their payment plans. The result looks very professional with lots of templates and music tracks, but you cannot add voice.

Microsoft Photo Story

Microsoft Photo Story | Guide to Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it

Microsoft Photo Story free download. This is one of the best programs ever produced by Microsoft and they seem to have discarded it! You will find it on a variety of downloading sites. Photo Story is, I believe, the best tool for digital story telling. It easily combines image, narrative and music in a smooth sequence.

Turn your videos and photos into movies with Movie Maker, a free download in Windows Essentials. It seems that Microsoft would prefer you used this tool rather than Photo Story for digital storytelling - but Photo Story still wins for ease of use.

Prezi

Prezi | Guide to Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
Prezi is a cloud based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas makes it fun to explore ideas and the connections between them.
Alida Bonotto's insight:

You can add Powerpoint slides to Prezi and add your own images or free-to- share ones. The templates are fine and you can edit the path of the zooming and add more "frames". Add text and symbols from Prezi's library. You can access more features on their payment plans. There's no sound capability.

Najmah El Tohami's curator insight, December 5, 2013 11:09 AM

We all come into the Earth with severed bonds from our original mates. We go through life unaware of this fact for many years, others longer. Once we realize this is possible we will have spent hours, days, weeks, months, years, and maybe even lifetimes being with other people that don't see beauty the same as we do. Why is this so? Because a spell has been cast on love to give way to that which grows from the  Earth, cultivated and sold to the highest bidder, that is money.
          Love demands attention. She must be wanted and nurtured and remembered. This is a story of a man and a woman --strangers to one another--who never stopped believing in the beauty of Love; being surrounded by Love; sharing Love; defending Love; making Love; spreading Love;receiving Love; sending Love; freeing Love; never hiding Love; waiting for Love; embracing Love in a moments notice; contemplating Love, as though she is all that exist; recognizing she is Goddess, of this planet.And must be treated as such.

In the beginning, there was one made into two. Separated they became lost, 'cause the One Verse was huge.  Roaming souls moved towards this galaxy, waiting for their time to make entry. Most people don't know how souls are formed,or how long they take to get home. But Negron and Najmah are surely a pair that made haste to getting there--together--once they rediscovered each other.
One day, not so long ago Najmah landed in a town of golden light, where rivers past by. Even the building she lived in was yellow and bright. Her home was surrounded with sacred numbers. Tropical birds would flock to her door, every winter, wearing her favorite colors,yellow, blues, greens, and black. Witches paid homage to her for they recognized her collar in a party of drummers, they sent offerings whenever she was missed. The time had come for the union of one, with her other part. It began with a knock on the door--an opening. Do I know you? The questioned lingered in the air 'til she turned away from his stare, then answered no. But come on in, your letting my heat out. They danced a dance of full romance, they talked and talked...To be continued.

Xtranormal

Xtranormal | Guide to Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
Stories that are just your type!
Alida Bonotto's insight:

"Xtranormal instantly turns your words into a 3D animated movie".

This application would be suitable for older students as its tone is more adult and it's more complex that the usual storytelling tool. Select characters from templates to conduct dialogues written by the user. Educator accounts can be created.
