Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.

 

El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).

 

Una gran herramienta.

 

De uso libre. (No tenemos que registrarte o iniciar sesión para acceder a ella).

Are you looking for a collaborative project that will engage students? How about having them create videos? This post provides information on five free editing tools, three for the PC and two for the Mac. Along with a description of the tool they also provide an idea for how to use the tool with project based learning (which is not required!). The tools listed are:

For the PC:

* Windows Movie Maker

* Wax

* StoryBoard Pro 

For the Mac:

* iMovie (not free for the iPad)

* Blender

There are screenshots of the first four tools and there is a brief trailer for Blender.

This is the tenth interview in an excellent series on "prominent figures from the world of transmedia."  The series starts with Should Filmmakers Learn to Code over at Filmmaker Magazine and includes interviews with:  Zeega (James Burns, Kara Oehler and Jesse Shapins); Elaine McMillion; Hugues Sweeney; Kamal Sinclair; Mark Harris; Brett Gaylor; Ingrid Kopp; Vivek Bald; Lance Weiler; Katerina Cizek; Fox Harrell; and Caspar Sonnen.

Two Pens's curator insight, May 13, 2013 3:34 PM

Transmedia is a weird term. It's also a new world that incorporates elements of traditional film-making, digital assets, photography, architectural drawings, you name it: all in service to story. It's fun but it 

takes a whip to control all those elements into something that translates into more than the sum of its parts.

The New Digital Storytelling Series: D. Fox Harrell of MIT | Filmmaker Magazine

The New Digital Storytelling Series: D. Fox Harrell of MIT | Filmmaker Magazine | Multimedia and Video Technology Resources | Scoop.it

In the penultimate part of Filmmaker and the MIT Open Documentary Lab's interview project with prominent transmedia figures, D. Fox Harrell, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Digital Media in the Comparative Media Studies Program and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT, answers our questions....

 

MIT OpenDocLab: What are the most useful skills for an interactive storyteller? What are the tools of the trade?

Harrell: First of all, I think that social, cultural, and critical awareness and sensitivity are key. You cannot get anywhere without addressing meaning and the world around you. Sensitivity to the human condition comes first, but then you need to express it using an interactive system. Toward this end, I think that computational literacy is quite important. Let’s think about this using film as an example, clearly you can create films without traditional cinematic literacy. For example, think of Stan Brakhage just dropping moth wings onto film stock, right? You can do a lot of different things; it doesn’t preclude someone from attempting to make works in the field without that particular form of understanding. But if you want to do work that is in dialogue with some of the affordances of the computer, then computational literacy is important because it gives us ways of thinking that are useful. I’m not just talking about abstract data-structuring or the coding procedures, I am talking about mental frameworks for thinking through issues of how information can be structured and operated on in systematic ways more generally.

Building brands is a lot like leaving legacies. What does it mean? Do we have the luxury of thinking we have that much control or will there be features that allow us to be dishonest with brand building?

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, May 28, 2013 9:57 AM

Boy are these kids going to be mad at their parents by the time they're 20-somethings...  "Why didn't you protect us?"  they will ask.  "Because we didn't know better," their parents will say. 

 

Putting a kid on the internet without knowing anything about how cookies and cache and logins and TOSs work is like handing them a handgun or putting them behind the wheel of a running car and then leaving.
