Story Creation and Design

Students should spend a majority of the allotted project time, in the creation and revision stage of their story before they ever get to the computer to put it together. Students want to make sure they are creating an interesting story that will attract and hold the attention of the audience before they put the pictures together and begin their recording.

Storyboards are essential tools for transition planning moving the story or concepts (meaning-making) from text-based ideas to planning / designing the how the media will be danced together (media-making) into illuminated understandings. Every media element and special effect should have an important "job" in the story. The storyboard needs teacher sign off - and be expected to be visible - an "elbow tool" - during the production and post-production phase of collecting and mixing media assets. A well-planned storyboard saves time and ensures quality post-production. It is the last stop for check that rigor of content has made it from the written to the media format. If no storyboard NOT time for technology! Make the storyboard the golden "ticket" for using technology tools.
