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."

Free Technology for Teachers: The Public Domain Review - A Good Place to Find Public Domain Media

Free Technology for Teachers: The Public Domain Review - A Good Place to Find Public Domain Media | Serious Play | Scoop.it

The Public Domain Review is a website that features collections of images, books, essays, audio recordings, and films that are in the public domain. Choose any of the collections to search for materials according to date, style, genre, and rights. Directions for downloading and saving media is included along with each collection of media.

As you might guess, nearly all of what I found in the collections on The Public Domain Review is content of a historical nature. The collections include short descriptions that explain the significance of the media you're accessing.

The Ice Bucket Challenge and the Art of Storytelling | LinkedIn

The Ice Bucket Challenge and the Art of Storytelling | LinkedIn | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"The challenge consists of people dropping buckets of ice water over themselves, recording it, sharing the experience to social media, and then nominating others to do the same. Challenge participants are also encouraged to make a donation to ALS research or to the charity of their choice. This viral campaign has undoubtedly achieved overwhelming success, raising both money and awareness for the disease, for which there is no cure."

 

True success lies in the art of storytelling –brands becoming part of people’s stories and people becoming part of the brand. Read the full article to find out more about these 10 lessons that can be learned from this ice-infused social phenomenon:

The value lies not in the idea, but in the doingTo ignite a social epidemic, flare up human involvementTransform consumers from the user, to the storytellerThink of a story as your currency for connectionEvolve from creating pictures and words, to creating experiencesMasterfully connect story and experienceEmploy technology as your enabling toolSimplicity mattersBut normalcy is overratedAnd lastly, every great story starts somewhere

What playfulness can do for you - The Boston Globe

What playfulness can do for you - The Boston Globe | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Even the most responsible adults occasionally indulge in playfulness: pursuing delight, engaging in friendly competition, and trying to amuse others and ourselves. Scientists who specialize in the psychology of play have only recently started getting a grip on what makes otherwise self-possessed, mature adults inclined toward fooling around—and what long-term benefits they get out of it. What they are discovering is that playfulness, as a personality trait, is not only complex but consequential. And one question facing them is whether those qualities are associated with a fixed trait that some people have and others don’t, or whether they arise from a state of mind that we can train ourselves to inhabit.

S.T.O.R.I… – A strategy using story principles for Trainers and Facilitators

S.T.O.R.I… – A strategy using story principles for Trainers and Facilitators | Serious Play | Scoop.it

While both improvisation and facilitation works best when the process and the outcome is open-ended, this does not mean it cannot be structured. How many times have you heard a facilitator or trainer say ‘trust the process’. One of the most important reasons for this trust is that, if the right ingredients are in the room, insight, transformation and learning is inevitable.

The S.T.O.R.I… model summarizes these necessary elements and demystifies the enigma of the process.

Skills Converged > Team Building Exercise: Pass the Tyre | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Purpose

This is a great teambuilding exercise that helps to cover several areas on leadership, teamwork and problem solving. You can run it like a competitive game for a large group. Allow the delegates go through the exercise several times to see if they can become better at the task. In the process they can learn how to work as a team towards a common objective.

The task is also fun to perform so it can be used as an energiser or even as a fun exercise to run during seminars and conferences. It provides a shared experience and an opportunity for people to have a laugh while also being able to address subjects related to teams and task completion.

Objective

Pass a tyre around a circle as quickly as you can without unclasping your hands.
