Students brainstorm ideas for a story and write a script, considering (1) the purpose of the story, (2) the context, (3) audience.
#5 Text power
Students explore examples of digital stories. They analyse what makes a good digital story. They explore the power of the narrative, images, sound effects and animation in the digital story. They explore the power of the author's 'voice'.
#6 Rehearsal and recording
Students practise reading aloud. They use available technologies to record their oral narratives. If required, they learn how to navigate relevant software or applications. They practise saving their files.
#8 Sharing and reflection
Students share their work with the intended audience which may provide feedback. They also reflect on the process and product of their work (e.g. what went well, what needs to be improved, how).
