Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Schools have begun to recognize the importance of multimedia use in education.

 

If you own an iPad, you have access to a host of apps and tools for creating digital stories. Use them for creative expression, communicating information, entertaining, expressing comprehension, tutoring purposes, and much more. Here are just
a few ideas:

 

•  Create a narrated slide-show story to demonstrate the understanding of new vocabulary.
•  Use a video or screencast (a recording of interactions on a computer or iPad display) to explain a complex scientific concept.
•  Create an audio or video interview of your grandparents for a family history project.
•  Create a historical narrative of a pivotal event using images and audio.
•  Create a first-person audio journal of a person who lived during a significant event in history.
•  Explain a mathematical concept by creating a screencast tutorial.
•  Use audio podcasting to practice reading and speaking in a foreign language.
•  Demonstrate a portfolio of work with personal narrative describing each piece, its objectives, and development.
•  Narrate a character story or a personal journal with a musical soundtrack.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

From the article:

"Digital storytelling makes for engaging lessons that allow students to create and publish content rather than just passively consuming it. It empowers every student with the opportunity to develop his voice and personalize it through the use of media.

(...) You have a wide variety of options for applying digital storytelling to your curriculum."

Does Your Classroom Tell a Story?

Does Your Classroom Tell a Story? | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Bringing objects and props into your classroom can create a world of curiosity and wonder for you and your students.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

"Do you have mystery objects that attract the curiosity of students, leading them to ask questions and that foster meaningful conversations? Is your classroom visually stimulating for the students?

Does it cultivate creativity, and more importantly, is it filled with objects, images and even props that help your students learn, even when they think they're not learning?"

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 21, 12:31 PM

This is a very quick article that connects directly with another post I curated today on Similar Stories and their use in sales.


This article by Tori Reid talks about how to talk about mistakes by sharing a Similar Story. The application in this case is to help someone change their behavior. Of course, it could apply to sales situations also. In the field of Folklore we would call these 'cautionary tales'.


Regardless, the point of this piece is how to offer criticism in indirect, yet powerful ways through storytelling. Reid shares 2 reasons why this works.


I wouldn't use this technique 100% of the time, but it is important to have in your storytelling tool box.
