10 Rules for Visual Storytelling | Teaching Online Journalism

10 Rules for Visual Storytelling | Teaching Online Journalism | Life Story Educators | Scoop.it

For some people, “visual storytelling” means photographs. For others, it means film or video. An epic movie such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy may spring to mind — and few would disagree with that as a fine example of visual storytelling.

 

In journalism writing classes, students learn: “Show, don’t tell.” When we provide a visual, that maxim carries even more weight. The less text or audio that an image needs to be understood, the better it is.

 

Some photojournalists think it’s best to let photos stand alone. Some like to publish their portfolios with no captions at all. This is a pet peeve of mine: I want to know more. I always want to know who, when, and where. Always! For me this is part of authentication, which is part of what makes it journalism and not interpretive art. A photo without a caption is not journalism.

Ten Digital Storytelling Projects | Free Technology for Teachers

A couple of months ago I put out a call for readers who were interested in sharing their digital storytelling projects to get in touch with me. There was a good response to that call. From those responses came ten digital storytelling projects developed and conducted by educators just like you and me. I assembled the stories, added some content of my own, and put together the PDF that you download below...

Stories on the Go! Digital Storytelling with Mobile Devices | Shelly Terrell

Simple K12 presentation! Find the resources here: http://tinyurl.com/shellyterrell 

 

Here's a great resource that was created for teachers, but you can use it too in your business. The presentation lists a variety of story apps for both the iPad and Android platforms that you can use to create or record and then broadcast your business stories.

 

Now how cool is that?!  I don't care for the two videos included in the slide deck. And business readers will have to do some translation from the classroom to business. But other than that, this presentation should give you some great ideas for using mobile in your business storytelling.
