Digital Storytelling

Share

 

This quarter I am taking an excellent graduate class called "Storytelling Art and Techniques." We are exploring ways to create multimedia stories as a new and innovative way to tell stories. I have been a storyteller for the last year and I want to help others become storytellers. I wanted to share some resources and also some really cool open source software called "Alice," which was created by a Ph.D student. Here is the link http://www.cmu.edu/corporate/news/2007/features/alice.shtml

And just in time for this year’s summer reading theme "Catch the Reading Bug" here is a link to 125 bug stories. This book can be downloaded through April.

Also, "The World of Digital Storytelling" by Jason Ohler is a great article to read. I will be posting more as the quarter progresses. Special thanks to my fabulous class and professor for all of these incredible resources. Happy Storytelling!
