This is a digital story that I made as part of our faculty collaborative in the Office of Information Technology at U of Minnesota. Faculty fellows made video shorts or digital stories to represent nearly 18 months of research oriented towards pedagogical change in a specific course. All of these projects will be published in an eMagazine before the end of the year. Just thought I’d share it here, as well!
I’ve been exploring the Center for Digital Storytelling’s model of DS for a little over a year now, and have integrated this style of DS into several of my classes. I plan to do so again next semester. What I really like about this model of DS is the emphasis on writing as a creative process – the script becomes the anchor for the whole project, and is supported through a Storycircle process that allows creativity to emerge in community rather than isolation.
