Digital Storytelling on #etmooc

I’ve been having a lot of fun with Digital Storytelling this week because it’s allowed me to be a bit more creative.

Last Sunday I took a road trip to Lorne, a seaside town on Victoria’s surf coast. I used it as an opportunity to take some photos but when the #etmooc activity was related to creating a digital story, it was what I need to experiment with a tool called Ezvid.

5 Flickr Story

By far, what I enjoyed was the 5Flickr story.  You choose 5 photos and you create a story.  What I liked was that I didn’t have to think logically but I could have my mind weave in and out of possible situations.  These were the 5 photos and I created two stories out of them…

    Hi Helen!

    I liked your stories. You had a fine time writing them, I suppose. The video is great. I didn’t know the place, so the vid turned out to be quite educational as well.
    Thanks for sharing 🙂
