A Handy Interactive Visual on The Digital Storytelling Process

A Handy Interactive Visual on The Digital Storytelling Process
June 24, 2014 Here is a great interactive Thinglink image on the process of digital storytelling I want to share with you today. This graphic is created by Tonia and features a wide variety of iPad apps that go with each of the stages of the digital storytelling process. Tonia used the concept of process writing (popularized by Donal Murray) to design this digital storytelling process visual. This process is made up of 7 stages namely :prewriting, drafting, editing, conferencing, revising, publishing, and sharing. If you hover your mouse over any of these stages you will be able to see a clickable button that you can use to access the list of iPad apps for that stage. I have spent sometime going through the different app suggestions included in this visual and I find them really interesting.

Stories aren't going anywhere and nor is the visceral, inexplicable, bone-deep shivery delight of a good tale well told. What happens, however, is that new technologies give creative people new ideas.
