October 22 Webinar: 30 Seconds To A Viewpoint

October 14th, 2009

Old BookshopHow simple can a digital story be? Does it always require text? Audio? Could it be as simple as… five images? We’ll look at Five Card Nancy and Five Card Flickr, and see what they tell us about the structure of digital stories and how to use them in the classroom. Then, we’ll refract the “five card” approach through the lens of the Center for Digital Storytelling’s “seven storytelling elements”, and construct a (very) short story that effectively integrates images, audio, and video.

    This is fantastic – just short notice or am I one of the last to get this info?

    The webinar schedule is posted on this blog if you follow the WebCasts link at the top of the page. However, our reminder announcement was later then we intended. Last’s week’s ACTEM MainEducation conference had all of us busy with face-to-face workshops, and we inadvertently missed our intended weekly reminder.

    Hopefully everyone will become more accustomed to the idea that we will have a webinar every Thursday except for weeks like ACTEM MainEducation or Thanksgiving.

    We loved to see Ruben at ACTEM… The only comment I would like to share is it would have been useful for some to know the duration… Thank you for this wonderful experience.

    We are aiming to keep the webinars to about an hour, but today’s 3:15 session ran a little long as we had some audio challenges at the start and then again in the middle. Thanks to all who hung in to the end. We are taking copious notes, and we are working to streamline the setup and ensure a smoother startup.

    Did Ruben say that the webinar would be available afterward in a video format to re-view the content? I would love to be able to pass this along to my English department.
