I created this during our 3-foot dump of snow during the blizzard we had recently, and was dreaming of being back in Hawaii.
Like many of you, I hate my voice. The narration is clipped, so it has to be redone. I had some problems timing the narration to fit along with the photo timeline, so had to digress from my storyboard script and ad lip or pause in some wrong spots. Will also being considering another soundtrack. Skyped with middle school teacher from Honolulu last night, and she recommended several popular Hawaiian singers' songs to use. Need to look into that. In the meantime, used George Winston's "Living in the Country," from his album Summer that I downloaded from iTunes.
Still a work in progress, but also thinking might just move on to another digital story about another Hawaiian islands.
- Create a story about one or more of your favorite places. Describe the place and tell why you like it.
- Take a digital story you created about your favorite place, and retell it adding dialogue. Get together with a partner and rotate speaking the lines, staying in the voice of specific characters.
- Create a digital story about the city or town where you live. Be sure the story tells the viewer about the sites. Post the story on your blog to share with students in another school who can then respond back.
- Create a digital story about the settings in works of literature we have read as class.
As for the second to last idea, sharing with another school, check this QuadBlogging project done by students in six varied countries: Our World, Our Stories: School Day or The Local Environment. Some of the students created videos to show others how and where they live.
