A lot happened in week 3. We had a guest speaker/presentation type thing that the whole school attended one day so that shortened our time in class one day. We had an assembly Friday that really shortened our class time as well. However, that doesn't mean we didn't learn anything. On Monday we talked about the seven elements of digital story telling .When I think of digital story telling I just think of a video of someone's life. This week I learned there's a lot more to it than just that. There's seven elements to it as a matter of fact. Those seven elements are point of view, a dramatic question, emotion, voice, soundtrack, economy, and pacing. After learning those elements we were able to begin our project knowing what is it expected to come out of them and knowing they have a purpose and it can't just be a random video with essentially no meaningful elements. Once we understood that we went into a digital storytelling workshop for the rest of the week. Those workshops were definitely used wisely for me cause there is nothing I hate more than homework, so I tried my hardest to finish my video within the time I was given in class. I think it's kind of neat how you call it a workshop because not everyone works at the same pace so we're all working on different things at a given time. I think that title "workshop" fits perfectly.
p.s. sorry this is late I was absent on the Friday of week 3. I also accidently linked the video to like 5 sentences and I didn't mean to do that but I don't know how to undo it. Haha
