Course Outline:

1. Introduction to Digital Storytelling

What’s Digital Storytelling? When did it start? We’ll look at examples and discuss the art form. For example, a digital story can be an interview or a memoir, or a piece that expresses an opinion.

2. Finding Your Story

Using various techniques, we’ll discover the raw material that leads to the story students want to tell. As a result, we’ll have the outline of the story students want to tell.

3. Storyboarding

Storyboarding is a flexible, visual method of “seeing” the story. It includes all elements of the story, for example, voice, narration, text and images. In the storyboard, students record each scene needed for their videos, so that there’s a record of what each scene needs.

4. Putting It All Together

Students will assemble the elements of their digital stories using video-editing software. For this class, we will use iMovie.

5. Conclusion and Film Show

Here’s your chance to show everyone what you made! What were the hardest parts? What did  you learn? Tell us how you made your video.
