    by
    The four principles of CARP: Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity Contrast—If two things are not the same make them really different Contrast means difference, and although difference sounds quite simple it is crucially important to the way we notice things.

    My Response to: “The Intelligence of Emotions: Philosopher Martha Nussbaum on How Storytelling Rewires US and Why Befriending Our Neediness Is Essential for Happiness”

    by
    This week I couldn’t resist focusing on emotions and truth. These two issues boiled to the surface due to the recent heated debates concerning false news, whatever that means, and the harm which is done by those producing it; that is those who sacrifice the truth in order to make a point and or a ...

    Digital Story Response No. 11: “Ghost Dance”

    by
    While searching the StoryCenter’s YouTube channel for recently uploaded digital stories I encountered “Ghost Dance.” Early into watching Tommy Orange’s digital story I connected it with Dee Brown’s (1971) seminal book “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West”  which is credited with exposing “some” of the systematic destruction of ...

    Response to Chapter 3: “The Evolution of the Digital Storytelling Practice”

    by
    I enjoyed reading Joe Lambert’s piece describing the evolution of digital storytelling. Part of my enjoyment arose from an important connection between Lambert’s piece and the digital story that I critiqued this week. The digital story was “What If Money Was No Object?” which was produced from an old audio recording of a talk given ... [Read more...]

    My Response to “At Last: Youth Culture and Digital Media”

    by
    This week I critiqued and wrote a response to the digital stories “Nanna’s House” and “Grandma’s Roof.” These digital stories were produced by two seventh-graders, Abigail and Victoria. The girls composed poems about their visits to their grandmothers’ homes and then read their poetry as the narration for their digital stories. This worked so well ... [Read more...]

    Digital Story Response No. 7: “Nanna’s House” and “Grandma’s Roof”

    by
    Poetry, written and performed by 7th graders is used to narrate these digital stories. This one digital story actually contains two which are packaged serially and labeled “7th Grade Poetry.” This film is a fine example of collaboration and creative cooperation, as even the transcript is simply titled “Nana’s House,’ which applies to both stories. ...
