L’estate e il caldo mi debilitano. Ecco spiegato il lungo e prolungato silenzio che deliberatamente ho mantenuto, assecondando un naturale istinto di sopravvivenza. L’attività, qui non manifesta, si è spostata su Flickr a cui ho affidato scoperte, sorprese, più o meno piacevoli, esplorazioni…

#etmooc #ltis13 Che fare con Flickr?

Il 20 maggio è stata lanciata una nuova versione di Flickr, non sono sicura che sia di mio gradimento. Trattandosi di un cambiamento inaspettato e per me non necessario, mi sono sentita tradita e indispettita. A giudicare dai commenti presenti nel forum di aiuto del sito di photo sharing il mio malumore è ampiamente condiviso, così sono portata a chiedere se gli utenti di flickr, disorientati dalla nuova veste, siano tutti conservatori.…

#etmooc #ltis13 Autoprotezione

Da quando Ginevra è entrata nella mia vita, 30 marzo 2013, i ritmi delle mie giornate sono mutati, dedicati a coccole, giochi e passeggiate. Di conseguenza la mia connessione alla rete si è drasticamente ridotta; a farne le spese è soprattutto questo blog, non così il mio album su flickr dove ho creato un set interamente dedicato alla cagnetta.

Digital Storytelling as a Morning Meeting Activity

Responsive Classrooms always are looking for morning meeting activities that are fun and energize students for the day. If the students can warm up and use their brains, too, it’s even better! Recently, I learned about Pechaflickr from Alan Levine‘s #ETMOOC session: Web Storytelling: 50 Ways, 5-Card Flickr & Pecha Flickr.…

Sharing Your Voice & Digital Storytelling

Bella & Jules 

I’ve been teaching digital storytelling to middle schoolers for the past nine years, and the tools have been getting easier and easier to use.  I began by using Pinnacle Studio on a standalone desktop computer–not connected to our SLOW school network.  I liked it, but always ran into issues with rendering…crashing, taking FOREVER, formatting, etc.  Eventually, we bought Flip cameras and were able to also purchase Adobe Premiere Elements and a new, much faster computer.  What a difference…!  The only problem is that we only had one editing computer in the school and of course each of the groups of students needed the one computer at the same time.  This was always frustrating because I only had the students three times a week for 30 minutes each day.  I was excited to learn about new online editing options through #etmooc Topic 2 Digital Storytelling.  Unfortunately, I was distracted by #edcampstl and #metc13 and haven’t been able to explore some of the activities I was really looking forward to.

Bringing Stories to Life – Digitally!

ds tools

Last week, I spent the majority of my #etmooc time trying new digital storytelling tools (GIFs, Flip Books, Visual Poetry5 Card Flickr) and posting about my explorations and learnings. This week, I wanted to hold off testing more tools (PopcornMaker, Inklewriter & Stop Motion are high on my list!) so I could take time to reflect on the concept of digital storytelling and consider the value of it in the classroom.…

Coming Full Circle with Digital Storytelling in #etmooc

After dabbling with digital storytelling last week as part of the work I’m doing as a learner in #etmooc, the Education Technology and Media MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) organized by University of Regina professor of educational and media Alec Couros and several “co-conspirators,” I circled back on the theme in a more focused and serious way.…
