Digital Storytelling is a wonderful way to get students engaged in the classroom and to allow them to make something in a non-traditional way. Technology is all around us and it will become more vital in the classroom as time passes by.
My idea for a digital story telling project (k-6) would be to ask my students to write down how they would like to see themselves and perhaps their favorite places or things and what they would like to be when they grow up. They can bring a current picture of themselves and we will scan it, save it and use it to digitally enhance it..=)
This picture that I edited is how I saw myself and envisioned myself while I was doing this.I was envisioning myself in colder weather lol, hint, the snow falling. I also like black and white pictures more than I do color, because I guess I value old things, like items, and this looks like something than could be old. I also like the fact that It’s not clear, which is what I intended for it to look like because it shows a bit of mysteriousness which is how I see myself sometimes when I’m super quiet and focused.
Although it doesn’t seem like much, in the end the little details go along way when analyzed. Which is what I would like my students to realize, that the little things that are done and the effort put into things, creates a bigger picture. =)
