Exploring, discussing, sharing ideas about the new technological advances for learning and teaching in the 21st century.
Honor, it is a powerful word, just as storytelling is powerful with Web 2.o tools. I truly enjoyed viewing the video stories. It was amazing to listen and watch your story unfold on VoiceThread. Your oral story, choice of photos, and music was extremely effective. I was moved by your story about "Honor." Though your other story, created in Animoto, was equally touching, I felt the images moved across the screen too quickly. As a future special educator, I will use VoiceThread to encourage language arts skills. I also believe it is a less distracting tool because of the slower photo transitions. Honor...It is a privilege to explore and learn new Web 2.0 tools shared by Dr. S...Honor.
Dr. S,This was a very touching video. I enjoyed the pictures and your journey as an educator, advisor, mentor, mother, wife, individual, and a learner. All you have shown me throughout my MSMC experience are all things I will remember and am proud to have been a part of. It has been an hour being a student and a member of KDP. Hour is a very pwoerful word and when we figure out what it means to us as individuals it creates wonders.
Dr S. The last comment was made by Christy. I did not realize it used my goggle group email.
This was a very moving presentation. Honor is a word that I take very seriously, I live by it and have taught both my children the importance of being a person of honor and character. Thanks for sharing with me.
Dr. S,Wow, my blog is so 'beginner' compared to yours. I am really impressed and really inspired to what mine could be. I am also inspired by your digital story on "honor." It is an honor to be a female, mother, wife and so much more - I agree completely. Until I saw your digital story I guess I just haven't thought about it in that context. Thank you for sharing and for being so inspiring. Best - Heather
I must say that of all the tools we have used, these story telling programs and sites have been my favorite. I was able to use both photo story 3 and animoto to create projects for this course. I had a great time doing each video. There are so many uses for this in the classroom, especially for a social studies teaher. I have some ideas for possible projects and look forward to using these programs again.
Wow I was truely impressed with VoiceThread. I agree with Ruby- all of the elements you included really added to your story. I like the idea of VoiceThread and I can definetly see myself using it in the classroom- especially in ELA to orally tell a story that a student has written. It is so much more effective than simply adding sound effects to a presentation. Thanks for sharing!
I truly enjoyed making my Photostory movie. There really is a lot that I can do with my kids using these different storytelling tools. I can't wait to use the tools when I'm teaching the Revolutionary War and Native Americans. This would be a great authentic assessment for my students who learn very differently than regular ed students. I think it's going to hook my kids and keep them engaged.
