Welcome to Digital Storytelling Resources

 

We'll use many of these resources for the new digital storytelling series we're doing, collaborating with the Watsonville Public Library, called

 

Cuentos del Campo/Stories from the Fields

 

 

We also used this wiki for our work on digital storytelling with the Pajaro Valley Unified School District (PVUSD), We All Have Stories to Tell.

 

The curriculum below is based partly on an unsigned "Digital Storytelling Workshop" outline from January 2008. We will go through the seven introductory lessons together over the four days of our first series of workshops. 

 

All of the lessons, and several helpful resource sites for digital storytelling, are listed in the SideBar at the lower right.

 

LESSON ONE

 

WHAT IS YOUR DIGITAL STORY?

 

http://www.storycenter.org/memvoice/pages/tutorial_1.

html http://www.storycenter.org/canada/index.html

 

What are different kinds of stories?

First person, POV, third etc…

How many different ways are there to tell a story?

Why is it important to tell your story your way?

Can other people tell your story?

 

 

GAME:

Split the group into pairs. We will tell each other one story, from the fields, from childhood, from school, or from any aspect of our lives. The person that listens to the story has to summarize it to the group. Switch and repeat.

Did the other person get your story right?

What did they leave out or put in? Why?

What is it like to listen to your story being told?

 

We're focusing on telling and retelling short stories to help everyone develop a sense of their own voice, in both the literal and metaphorical senses -- a writer's voice should reflect a clear point of view, an attitude or perspective that can be readily identified, just as we can almost immediately recognize familiar voices and easily distinguish strange voices from each other.

 

Brainstorm and FREEWRITE: Just write, don’t be afraid!

 

Share stories with the group and discuss. 

 

For tomorrow, we will each want to have a draft of our story, and some images, objects, or other memorabilia to use for the visual part of the story-making process.
