Do you like stories? If the answer is ''Yes'' , you are in the right place. We all know that the stories draw not only children's attention but also adults' attention. And this week's task is about digital storytelling.For this task, we create a story with my friend Esra Seferinoğlu.I'm gonna give you the details of this process.I wanna tell you that we use an online Animaker program to create this story.
A digital story is a short story created by combining a recorded narrative with images (still or moving), and music or other sounds. The story is usually 2-3 minutes in length and told in the first person, about a person, event or issue the narrator feels strongly about. The digital storytelling process typically recognizes many elements of storytelling, including the oral tradition, the writing process, the power of visuals, and the role of digital media in recording and sharing stories.
The difficulties of the digital storytelling process
To be honest, the digital storytelling process has some difficulties. Actually, I don't think that we had so much difficulty during recording process. But while we working with PowerPoint to add our voice recording in a digital form, we had to be careful. This process was very tiring as we Also we had to pay attention to the length of the story because the story should be 2 minute or less than 2 minutes in length.
How did collaborative working contribute to our outcome?
Collobration works have so many advantages to the students like us. Firstly, you are so more relaxed while working with someone than by yourself. Because you know that you don't have to carry the burden of the work by yourself. Also you can benefit from the knowledge of your fellow worker. I realize that the group works made me more self confident.
