VSTE Goes Green: Over the years we’ve made an effort to reduce the amount of paper waste that gets accumulated by reducing the scope of the printed program. This year we will provide a printed conference program with only a summary schedule of the sessions available during each breakout session. For the full detailed listing of each session we encourage attendees to make use of our online schedule here which will work on mobile devices and all major platforms.

What's Your Story? Telling Beautifully Illustrated Stories with Your Photographs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come for a rich, artistic experience learning the art of telling digital stories as well as increasing photography skills using whatever camera you have – smartphone, point-and-shoot, or DSLR! While knowing some tips and tricks for how to operate a camera (or the camera app on your device) will be helpful for taking photos, there is much more to be done when looking through the "view finder". The photographer is the key ingredient in making great photos. Bring your choice of cameras and a laptop or tablet for this hands-on interactive photography and digital storytelling experience. The ideas you learn here are directly applicable in the classroom with students. You’ll leave with ideas for how to guide your students towards better photography and digital storytelling experiences! Supporting the ISTE standards of Creativity and Innovation and Communication and Collaboration, teachers and student will explore the concept of making stories come alive through photography. By artfully choosing about how to extend the mood and theme of a story through well-crafted images, students and teachers become masterful storytellers. During the hands-on presentation, attendees will be engaged in an Introduction to Digital Storytelling and the Take 6 Elements, Craftsmanship of Images and Sound, and Developing The 6 Slide Story. This presentation is supported by the following author’s work. Digitales: The Art of Digital Storytelling by Bernajean Porter Story Proof: The Science Behind the Startling Power of Story by Kendall Haven The Power of Story: Teaching Through Storytelling by Collins & Cooper
