Digital Storytelling: What it is... And... What it is NOT - Langwitches

Digital Storytelling: What it is... And... What it is NOT - Langwitches | History | Scoop.it
I was lucky to have shared my childhood bedroom for a few years with my grandmother, when she had come to live with us after an illness. At bedtime, she would tell me stories of her parents and three brothers and growing up in East Prussia, fleeing to the West after WW2 and the things that occupied her mind. I was hooked on storytelling. The fascination grew when technology became available and opened up possibilities that were just not possible before. I would give anything to have been able to record my grandmother’s stories and have shared them with my own children years later.

Zoe Campbell's insight:

This infographic shows that digital storytelling has the potenial to be both interractive and collaborative. Rather than passive learning/listening, it becomes a platform for discussion.

AC History Units presents 8 units developed by the History Teachers' Association of Australia to support teachers in the implementation of the Australian Curriculum: History ...A major goal has been to provide the conceptual background (in Unit 1) and concrete examples (in Units 2-8) to assist teachers in designing their own programs and learning sequences for other topics and year levels.

AC History Units is a website created by the History Teachers' Association of Australia. The site contains 8 units developed to support the implementation of the new history section of the Australian Curriculum. The site also aims to help history teachers to design their own history units and learning sequences. As a history teacher, this is the jackpot! It is full of wonderful lessons from great units, which are already linked to the AusVELS and deemed age appropriate. Half the work of lesson and unit planning is done for you. This is an excellent resource to hold onto!

 

Robert Kidd's curator insight, January 3, 2014 2:01 AM

Major Thomas Anderson Kidd served with the 10th Light Horse in Gallipoli and Egypt, was wounded and became seriously ill with Cholera.

 

He wrote diaries which he embellished with maps and diagrams. He was Mentioned in Despatches for gallantry in May & August 1915 and he suggested Hugo Throssell get the Victoria Cross at Hill 60.

 

I edited a transcript of Tom’s re-written diary and began to understand his frustration with the foolishness of some orders and the impossibility of many aspects of the campaigns that he was involved in.

 

In my extensive reading I have found these words have been used to describe him; cool, calm, fair, caring, splendid, brave, fearless, reckless, bullet proof & the men even considered him bomb proof!

 

These men and their families obviously had a life both before & after their war service and I am interested in all facets; particularly the affect war had on them.

 

My book "Uncle Tom's Diary" is a young adult novella about the discovery of one of his diaries ... and secrets!
