PPLI digital Story Telling A4 Poster - Page 5

In this phase students gather, create and organise the
media items they want to use in their digital story.
Students can proudly show their digital story to everyone.
This can happen:
This phase includes:
• during a public screening where they can also
comment on and discuss their work
Organisation of folders
It is advisable that students create a master folder on
their device which contains a number of subfolders (e.g.
script, storyboard, images, voice recording, music) where
they can save and store the media les they source for
the video.
Voice recording
Students record themselves reading the script.
Things to consider:
• How to prepare your students for the voice recording?
Which are the features you want them to focus on in
terms of pronunciation and intonation?
• Which digital tool do you want to use for the voice
recording? Consider that:
by using audio editing software like Audacity the
process might take longer.
by using video editing software the process can be
accomplished during phase 4, the phase in which the
students assemble all the media components to
create the digital story.
• on a dedicated and protected online space where they
can upload the video and share it with their peers.
The role of feedback and reection
Feedback and reection are essential in supporting
students to make sense of their learning and to move
their learning forward. By setting goals and reecting on
these goals throughout the process, students are clear on
what they hope to achieve. Feedback, from peers or the
teacher, offers students further support for improving
their learning. Feedback based on success criteria offers
clarity to students as they draft and re-draft their work.
On publishing the digital story, reection on the entire
digital storytelling process is important for the students
as they get the opportunity to acknowledge what they
have learned and to take pride in their work.
• Where students can do the voice recording,
considering that they need a quiet and silent place for
Selecting or creating images, music and sounds
Students can create their own media items (e.g. pictures,
using their own digital camera; music and sounds,
recording themselves playing some instruments or
producing some sounds) or they can select and download
pre-existing media items from the Internet.
Make sure students:
• select high resolution and large size images
• use copyright-free items
Students engage in the actual creation of their digital
story. Using video editing software they assemble all the
media items they have gathered and/or created and edit
the resulting video.
Their original and unique digital story is nally ready.
Things to consider
• Do you want to use video editing software (e.g. iMovie
for Mac, Microsoft Photo Story for PC) or a web-based
video editor (e.g. Adobe Spark)? Consider that a webbased video editor can be used on all devices but can
have limited features, while video editing software has
more features but can be used only on specic devices.
