Digital storytelling means most basic core is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. There are a wealth of other terms used to describe this practice, such as digital documentaries, computer-based narratives, digital essays, electronic memoirs, interactive storytelling, etc.; but in general, they all revolve around the idea of combining the art of telling stories with a variety of multimedia, including graphics, GIFs, audio, video, and Web publishing.
From my point of view,Telling our story is an essential part of our humanness. It allows us to feel part of the global community that knows our story, and it fosters empathy for those that surround us. It doesn’t matter where you live, we are connected by digitally. Digital storytelling creates space for students to pursue topics about which they are passionate, grows their learning around assigned topics, and showcases their learning for peers, teachers, and audiences beyond the schoolhouse, all of whom are able to interact with the storyteller. First of all, I have learned confidence from this class because professor, Ryan Seslow made this class easy and more interesting by providing necessary instructions and inspiration. As I learned from the CT101 class:
- How to make blog post, comments,and replies in the digital area.
- How to make Animated Graffiti using different websites ( Imgur, Giphy.com).
- How to do Hyperlink.
- Week 7 through 8 was very important to choice our web domain, create own website, and completed basic operations of our site. Again, my own web site address is www.tanianazir.net
- How to do GIF Portrait project.
Be honest not all the time that I understood the professor’s instructions. He told us to google the particular issue and solve it that whatever you like best.However, My website (www.tanianazir.net) is very straight forward. I have used word press. Website logo quote is ” Keep calm and drive on,….Dream Digital.”
Under my Website, there are five portfolio options which I remarked as About, Say Hi, Digital storytelling, Fun and Learn, Awareness Post, and Link for CT101 Post. All these categories are visible in the opening page. I have published 11 blog posts in my own website under the categories Fun and Learn(5), Digital Storytelling(4), and Awareness post(3). In the Link for CT101 Post category I have provided another 12 blog posts link which I have already posted directly CT101 site. In the bottom line, my future plan is be a web developer. Again CT101 Class is one of the creative class that I’ve taken at York. I will definitely going to keep my website. I think this is just beginning. I am really grateful that I was part of CT101.
