Goal and Purpose
Overview of our session
How can we create immersive digital stories?
How can we use game-like design and computational thinking to create immersive interactive stories?
Background & Research Digital Storytelling
Interactive Multimodal Learning Environments
Multi-modalities we will focus on: image, text, sound and interaction
Look at Multi-modal stories
Read Inanimate Alice Ep. 1 (all together)
Read again on your own (volume on is okay)
Write ways in which the different senses: sight, sound and touch were used in the story.
What impact do you think this has on the story?
Why can multi-modalities help to differentiate students literacy learning?
Benefits of using multi-modalities to differentiate for a variety of learners
Show SSIS Alice Projects
Part 2 Design and Games
What makes games fun?
Characteristics of good games.
Part 3 Stories and Programming
Other programming tutorials to explore
Process of creating a digital story using programming
Write Story (may use writing process depending on the standards/outcomes of lesson/unit).
Plan how you will make this – I recommend creating a Digital StorytellingPlanning ladder (see example)
Part 4 Creating, Playing, Planning and Work time
Create a plan for integrating interactive storytelling into an existing unit or lesson
Start experimenting with Scratch and your story
Part 5 Sharing, Feedback and Reflection
Share what brainstorms and create for our lesson and unit
our Responses are here.
