Windows only. The 5 Levels of Digital Storytelling. By kylemawer It’s our pleasure to introduce a guest blog post by James Taylor, who has been adapting gaming elements (such as leveling up) and applying them to digital storytelling.

The 5 Levels of Digital Storytelling

Thanks, James for a very interesting blog post and loads of great web links and resources which you’ll find near the end – Some of them we’re familiar with here at Digital play but we can’t wait to dip into all the others. Over to you James . . . When we think of introducing web-based tools into our classrooms, as teachers we often obsess over the technical side of things.

Others upload Word documents, provocative images, and/or short video clips. Regardless of the kinds of content choices that you make, VoiceThread has the potential to engage your students and — if you’re willing to find professional partners to play with — to connect your class with students across counties, countries, or continents.

VoiceThread has three distinct advantages for teachers interested in making digital communication a part of their professional practice: Teaching Sagittarian - VoiceThread as a Digital Portfolio. I’ve been twittering the past several weeks about using VoiceThread as a digital portfolio for our Student-Led Conferences this semester.

Teaching Sagittarian - VoiceThread as a Digital Portfolio

In the past, my students have used Photostory3 to show and talk about their learning as a starting point for their Student Led Conference with their parents. I’m now teaching in a mac school so Photostory3 was not an option. I felt that iMovie was just a little too intricate for what I wanted, a wiki was a consideration and then the brainwave of VoiceThread appeared in my head late one night! The more I considered VoiceThread, the more it’s interactive features appealed to me. Using Photostory3 meant a final product.

Using VoiceThread was easy! Step 1: Sign up students for an individual account each in VoiceThread. Home - Creaza Education. 6 Free Websites For Public Domain Images & Free Stock Photos. Public Domain Pictures This page is a repository for public domain images.
