Educational Technology in ELT: Digital Storytelling

Educational Technology in ELT: Digital Storytelling | Online Creative Social Mobile Writing, Storytelling | Scoop.it

Vicky Saumell, 29 March 2012

...

Digital Storytelling is any combination of images, text, audio and music to create a digital story, either fictional or non-fictional.

...

The presentation focused on ways of implementing digital storytelling with teens. I described what I believe are its benefits and then showed three examples of projects I did with my students from Instituto San Francisco de Asis in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

...

Some digital storytelling tools you can use:

Powerpoint and Windows Movie Maker allow you to combine images, text, music and audio to create digital stories.

...

Animoto allows you to upload images and combines them automatically with a selection of background music available on the website. The free version has a 30 seconds limit. For longer videos you need the paid version.

...

Xtranormal allows you to create text to speech animations.

...

Voicethread is a slide show creator, in which you can type or record comments around each slide.

...

Zimmer Twins is an animation creator, where you can choose from 3 characters (a boy, a girl and a cat) but you can then customize their actions, face expressions, verbal utterances, background, objects in their hands and transitions. It is very versatile and it automatically adds sound effects according to your choices. This is one of my favourites!

...

Pixton is complex comic creator tools where you can choose a template and customize it, or you can start from scratch. The final result looks very professional!

...

Bookr is a digital book creator which retrieves photos from Flickr (according to your search). You select the pics you want to use on each page and you can write text or captions below the pics.

...

Bubblr is very similar to Bookr but instead of a book the result is a comic strip. It also retrieves photos from Flickr and you can add text in bubbles.

http://www.pimpampum.net/bubblr/?id=22482


...

Storybird is a digital storybook creator. You choose the illustrations you can to include in your story from what is available in the website. There is a huge collection of beautiful illustrations by amazing artists. You can search by artist or theme/keyword. You can then add text below the illustrations. The result is absolutely fantastic!

...

There are many more tools but I wanted to focus on the ones I mentioned in my presentation. I'm sure I'll write a second post about digital storytelling tools!

Here are the slides for my presentation

For many writers who’ve faced rejection after rejection from publishing houses, self-publishing can start to look like a pretty good idea. While there are writers out there who’ve managed to make self-publishing work for them, there are risks involved with self-publishing that every writer should know about. Namely that some self-publishing companies may be pretty shady and could cost you extra time and money if you’re not aware of the kinds of scams they run. Here are some of the most common scams that happen in self-publishing, a list that anyone even considering self-publication should read before entering into any kind of agreement or paying any fees associated with self-publishing.

#writing with #scrivener on #mac and (later on) #iPad #ebook export #iBooksAuthor #ibooks #epub | Online Creative Social Mobile Writing, Storytelling | Scoop.it

... while waiting on scrivener for iPad :-) some news about worfklows from writing to publishing in different formats ... at the End I collected some links for detailled informations (blogspost, ebooks and an online course :-) Heiko

...

KB, posted 19 January 2012

Just a few quick notes on iBooks Author, as understandably we’re already receiving questions about the best way of going from Scrivener to Apple’s new e-book publishing tool.

...

To answer the most obvious question first, I’m afraid it won’t be possible to provide a direct export to iBooks Author, as the .iba format is proprietary and not in the public domain (and Apple hasn’t historically shared its file formats with third parties). At least, not to the best of my knowledge – if Apple did make it public then we’d certainly look at it.

...

So, for the foreseeable future, that leaves other formats for import and export. When I heard the rumours about an e-book creator being announced at today’s Apple event, I had high hopes that it would open and save .epub files. Unfortunately, despite iBooks Author having WYSIWYG editing and generating files that seem to be at least based on .epub, this isn’t the case. iBooks Author saves to the proprietary .iba format and publishes to the .ibooks format (which seems to be Apple’s version of .epub, much as .rtfd is Apple’s extended version of .rtf; iBooks Author cannot open or import .ibooks files, however). This is perhaps unsurprising, as Apple are obviously only interested in generating content for iBooks (iBooks Author – hmm, the clue might be in the name). What this means for Scrivener users, though, is that you can’t just export an .epub from Scrivener and open that up in iBooks Author.

...

For Scrivener users, this means that the best way of getting your work into iBooks Author is to compile to the .docx format, and then drag the resulting file into iBooks Author. You’ll then have to copy and paste the text into different chapters in iBA itself. You could compile each chapter to a separate file, but that would be time consuming.

...

Scrivener for Mac’s .docx export isn’t, in truth, the best at the moment, as it tends to lose certain formatting and doesn’t support images, which may be a problem for some types of text but shouldn’t cause problems for novels and text-only first drafts ... The good news is that I am currently working on better .doc, .docx and .odt support, so this situation should be improved in the next update.

...

We’re also thinking about what better ways we can provide of going from Scrivener to iBooks Author – for instance, by generating different .docx files for each chapter – given that I’m sure that many users are going to want to do this after they’ve hammered out their text in Scrivener.

...

Please bear in mind that I have only had as long as anyone else to play with iBooks Author, so the above is all just based on a couple of hours of testing. Over all, iBooks Author looks very nice, and once we find the best workflow for getting your Scrivener text into it, then I’m sure it will be a great way of taking your Scrivener drafts and turning them into beautiful e-books on iBooks.

Using Scrivener on the Mac and iPad writing apps

Take Control of Scrivener 2 from TidBITS Publishing

...

Although it uses Moby Dick as an example, Take Control of Scrivener 2 is not aimed only at fiction writers but is a general guide to using Scrivener. If you’ve been through the tutorial but want a more hands-on guide written by someone with a bit more distance from Scrivener, and who has years of experience explaining software to a general readership, you may want to give Kirk’s e-book a whirl. A sample of the contents can be found here:

Read sample pages.

Take Control of Scrivener 2 comes in both PDF and ePub formats (you get both), so you can view it on your iPad, and costs $10. You can buy it from the tidbits.com site or directly from our store here:

TumbleOn Brings Tumblr to the iPad | PadGadget

TumbleOn Brings Tumblr to the iPad | PadGadget | Online Creative Social Mobile Writing, Storytelling | Scoop.it
TumbleOn for Tumblr is a streaming image viewer for Tumblr, the Internet’s favorite virtual watercooler. Though it’s arguable that it exists solely for sharing cat photos and perpetuating goofy Internet memes, Tumblr is all about sharing the stuff that the Web is made of: photos, videos, quotes, audio.

Unfortunately Tumblr has only a poorly-designed iOS app that still doesn’t run natively for the iPad. That is where TumbleOn comes in. TumbleOn displays a user’s Tumblr dashboard, favorites, blog, and more, taking full advantage of the iPad’s larger screen size and high resolution.

Users can reblog, like, bookmark, or comment on the images as they wish. The app also allows users to share images outside of Tumblr via email or by saving the image to the iPad’s camera roll. The app also lets the user open Tumblr in Safari on the iPad at any time.

).t.(

Viewing TumbleOn’s stream created a new way to look at Tumblr images and see the accidental relationship between them. This shot of my dashboard looks like an intentional collage, but it was completely impromptu.

).t.(

It’s not even necessary to have a Tumblr account to use TumbleOn. The app includes a stream of its own curated picks, which is a great place for a Tumblr newcomer to get started. Users can also browse the feeds they follow or those of their followers independently from the dashboard feed. Forget to bookmark something? Just check the app’s history feed.

4 Inspiring Examples of Digital Storytelling | Online Creative Social Mobile Writing, Storytelling | Scoop.it
Today's artists are creating interactive, multimedia experiences where the audience can actively reshape the stories themselves.

 

In 2011, Sundance Film Festival created The New Frontier Story Lab, an initiative created to foster the development of a new style of media production. As media began to depart from traditional, linear films intended for a passive audience, the launch represented an innovative new era in entertainment.

 

The New Frontier Story Lab helped many an interactive narrative come to life. Each of these productions features multiple points of entry across platforms and employs technologies such as facial recognition, augmented reality, geo-location, motion sensors, data visualization and the entire toolset of social and mobile platforms.

New Media Narratives: Writing and Publishing in a Developing Field: Week 9: Transliteracy

New Media Narratives: Writing and Publishing in a Developing Field: Week 9: Transliteracy | Online Creative Social Mobile Writing, Storytelling | Scoop.it

“The ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks.”

The word “transliteracy” is derived from the verb “to transliterate,” meaning to write or print a letter or word using the closest corresponding letters of a different alphabet or language.

The idea of transliteracy is really about promoting a unifying ecology. As Thomas explains,
“The concept of transliteracy calls for a change of perspective away from the battles over print versus digital, and a move instead towards a unifying ecology not just of media, but of all literacies relevant to reading, writing, interaction and culture, both past and present.
It is an opportunity to cross some hitherto quite difficult divides.”
Transliteracy asks key questions about communication:

:::

  1. How were people remembering and communicating for the thousands of years before writing?
  2. Where are the similarities with the way we communicate today?
  3. Has our addiction to print made us forget skills we had before?
  4. Can digital media reconnect us with those skills again?

Watch “Social Media Revolution” on YouTube.


Literacy is not linear. ““Part of the confusion about media convergence stems from the fact that when people talk about it, they’re actually describing at least five processes” (Henry Jenkins, 2001).

  • technological
  • economic
  • social or organic
  • cultural
  • global

Writing Wednesdays: Thinking in Metaphors

Writing Wednesdays: Thinking in Metaphors | Online Creative Social Mobile Writing, Storytelling | Scoop.it
One of the things you learn writing fiction is to think in metaphors.

Yeah, he's Jake. But what does he represent?

The first draft of any novel or screenplay usually spills forth in blissful cluelessness. You tell yourself, I’m writing a detective story, or a Western, or some crazy genre that I don’t even know the name of. Then comes Draft #2 and you have to ask yourself, “What the hell is this thing about?”

...

That’s when metaphor comes in.

It took me a long time to learn this, and a lot of people had to hammer me and my work pretty hard. Words like “shallow,” “slick” and ‘Yiddish theater” come to mind (the latter criticism I took as a compliment.)

What makes Chinatown more than a detective story? What takes Shane beyond being just a Western?

...

The answer is metaphor.

In a shallow genre piece, the characters represent nothing beyond themselves. A car chase is a car chase, a courtroom scene is a courtroom scene. Much of what we see on TV is like that.

But all that changes when Robert Towne asks himself, “What does Jake Gittes represent? What is water (the L.A. River, Hollenbeck bridge, the lake where Hollis Mulwray takes his “girlfriend” boating) a metaphor for?

...

When the writer answers those questions—and revises his post-first-draft story accordingly—his material gains depth and power and universality. It stops being superficial and easy.

Who is Shane, beyond being a gunfighter who wanders into the middle of a range war? What does he stand for?

Alan Ladd as Shane, the Man With A Past, who wants to leave his past behind

The writer thinks in metaphors.

ZooBurst is a digital storytelling tool that lets anyone easily create his or her own 3D pop-up books. Using ZooBurst, storytellers of any age can create their own rich worlds in which their stories can come to life.

 

ZooBurst books 'live' online and can be experienced using nothing more than a web browser running the Adobe Flash plug-in. Authors can arrange characters and props within a 3D world that can be customized using uploaded artwork or items found in a built-in database of over 10,000 free images and materials.

 

Once constructed, books can be inspected from any angle from within a 3D space, and rotating around a book is as easy as dragging and dropping a mouse. In addition, authors can choose to make items "clickable," allowing readers to learn more about individual characters within a story. Each character can have its own 'chat bubble' that pops up when that character is clicked. In addition, authors can also record their own voices using the ZooBurst audio recorder to have their characters really 'speak' when clicked!
