Robot-Enhanced Creative Writing and Storytelling

Robot-Enhanced Creative Writing and Storytelling | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

There have been complaints leveraged against out of the box robots like Dash and Dot, Ozobot, Hummingbird, Sphero. The complaints usually revolve around the canned and prescriptive nature of their uses and programs, that they lack creative engagement by the younger users. I personally love the excitement my learners have using these robots.

Digital Storytelling Tool – Exposure

Digital Storytelling Tool – Exposure | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

Hello again everybody! This week’s blog post will focus on a digital storytelling tool of my choice. Storytelling tools allow you to tell a story. The tool I decided to work with was Exposure. Exposure allows users to create stories with photos, visual texts, and a beautiful layout. I basically created a website/blog. Exposure was easy to use, because every link to add a post, or change the settings was right in front of me.

Digital Storytelling: A Creator’s Guide to Interactive Entertainment (Carolyn Handler Miller)

Digital Storytelling: A Creator’s Guide to Interactive Entertainment (Carolyn Handler Miller) | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

Digital Storytelling: A Creator’s Guide to Interactive Entertainment. This book has gone through several editions, the most recent the third edition from 2014. Miller is interested in works that are digitally delivered, interactive, non-linear, narrative, with distinct characters, participatory and navigable. Each of her chapters ends with some idea-generating exercises to help you brainstorm about the topics she’s just raised. Unlike many of the books I’ve been surveying recently, this one is not specifically focused on games or the game industry; instead, it’s looking from a storyteller’s perspective at how to deliver experiences for which the page of a book is not necessarily sufficient. That in itself gives it a rather different flavor: many games writing books are quick to identify the ways in which their game genres are constraining or limiting, or present “challenges”.

Encourage Students to Reflect on Their Growth with This Free Slides Portfolio Template – Teacher Reboot Camp | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

“We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.” Paraphrase of John Dewey’s work  One of the most important ways to end the year is by getting students to reflect on the learning journey in your class. They need to reflect on the purpose of different tasks and projects. They need understand what learning they achieved and think about how to use this learning in their future classes and life. Students also need to own their achievements and feel proud no matter their final grades.
