Digital Storytelling Projects for the Classroom #adobe2017iste and #CertifiablyCreative

People want stories in their social media, not advertisements so businesses are hungry for young designers that understand can tell a compelling story. In this session, we will explore the tools and storytelling strategies that will give your students a competitive advantage when entering the workforce.

Storytelling Strategies

  • Visuals - images, graphics - symbols, charts, icons, video, animation (Moon and Balloon: Example of film with no dialog)
  • Audio - voice - expression, music - emotional impact, sound FX - added detail
  • Text - style, readability (Less is More!)
  • Simple, authentic, short
  • Lesson learned, moral or call to action

Light Bulb Example

Creativity comes from open ended lessons that allow students to tell their own stories and feed off each other.
