An Adventure in 5 by GrammaSheri
How do you create an adventure story?
You invite your Professional / Personal Learning Neighborhood to join in on the fun!
Inspired by Digital StoryTelling #etmooc number seven (Choose Your Own Adventure), I adapted the idea and invited my friends, none of whom I’ve ever met!
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.
Here’s the invitations and brief directions: https://vimeo.com/59327792
DIRECTIONS TO AUTHORS
On our Adventure in 5 Google Presentation, the directions are:
On the first slide is a drawing, the beginning.
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
I used SnagIt to screencast, then imported to iMovie to add the music loop included in iMovie.
I wonder what you would do with this idea?
