On the 14th of July 2012, 2 of my students Luqman Hakim b Rusli and Muhamad Amirul Irfan b Mohd Termidi attended The Launching of Perak 5A Education Portal and a Mini Seminar at SK Seri Ampang. At the seminar they presented their Digital Story telling entitled "The Farm Animals."
I am the teacher in-charge and I helped them to create the story from their textbook.
The presentation is an animated digital story telling with animal sound by Year 5 pupils. This animated digital story telling is to introduce the sound of animals. The sound is made by the students themselves by recording the sound using the sound tools. Pictures of animals are taken by inserting clipart pictures.
Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and music. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between two and ten minutes. The topics that are used in Digital Storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one's own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between.
Simple steps in making Digital Story Telling
First of all, write a storyboard for the Digital Story Telling. From there it is easy for us to organise our work.
Then, download all the pictures and sound from the internet. We can also insert the sound and picture from the clipart. Also download the songs from youtube for the singing session.
We also record the narrator, using sound from media clips and insert it in the slide. We chose our friend Khalida as the narrator.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An electronic book (variously, e-book, ebook, digital book)
is a book-length publication in digital form, consisting of text,
images, or both, and produced on, published through, and
readable on computers or other electronic devices. Sometimes
the equivalent of a conventional printed book, e-books can also
be born digital. The Oxford Dictionary of English defines the
e-book as "an electronic version of a printed book,"
but e-books canand do exist without any printed equivalent. E-books
are usually read on dedicatede-book readers. Personal computers
and some mobile phones can also be used to read e-books.
Attention Year 5 Baiduri......all of you are invited to join in the E book program to upgrade your vocabulary.
