Thanks to my PLN: @mrsdkrebs @gallit_z @MsLHall @lindapemik via one tweet to Denise Krebs, who passed it on to Gallit, who passed the story on to Ms Hall, who passed in on to Linda, we now have a story, and hopefully five stories in five steps.
Please add to the tale in the next slide with your drawing You may copy my drawing and edit it, or create another new drawing.
When your tale has extended the story, invite another person to add to the next slide. Add your name to the title slide.
When we have 5 drawings, each of us will outline a different “adventure” in Mind42 from story slide 1 to story slide 5 (that’s three choices in the middle).I will invite you to collaborate — send me your email at grammasheri at gmail dot com
If possible, when we all have an adventure, each of us can “narrate” the story by rearranging the slides and screencasting our own story. I can do it for those without access to screencasting. Link to your story on the first slide.
For screencasting, the directions were:

7: Plan a “Choose Your Own Adventure Story” (Collaborate) Adaptation:
Draw an object Then ask a peer to draw a related object. Pass your peer’s drawing on to another peer and have them draw a related object. Keep doing this until you have 5 drawings (including your original object).
Create a story that links the original object with the last object drawn. What is the connection between the first object and the last object?
Write a brief story, then try to create multiple pathways that a user could go through the story. Use a mind-mapping tool
Have you thought of what your own footprint looks like? Or the story it tells?
Imagine students curating their footprints — and able to see how their world reaches back through their connections?
In the Digital Story Telling review, I clicked a link to Memolane and followed the directions. The embed code doesn’t work here, but here’s the link to the ETMOOT lane I created. While this would not be a choice for younger students, it might be good for high school students to visualize their contributions.
I’m behind ( need rhizome post) and ahead (digital storytelling) — racing like a turtle and I can’t keep up, yet I add to the story with a segment from past post from 2009 because of this encouraging post by Verena Roberts for next week’s digital storytelling#etmooc. We have much to learn the next two weeks. And another idea those of us teaching, might be to to use poetry as a vehicle to tell a story.
April is Poetry Month and on April 18th, it’s Poem In Your Pocket Day. Want to participate? Here’s an idea…
