Modules 1-4 are focused on the Digital Storytelling process as a way to express diversity and to promote inclusion in activities. You will acquire skills in digital storytelling, see examples of stories other students have shared and create your own story on the themes of INCLUSION, WELLBEING AND DIVERSITY. Module 2 looks at the next 2 steps in the Digital Storytelling process: Script writing and storyboarding.
The activities in the module are designed to:
Each student writes a fact about themselves and adds it to a tub. The teacher draws these out one at a time and students guess who the fact relates to.
This should be 250 words long so that it takes 1-2 minutes to read through (one hour writing time). The script is your story related to one of the themes of the project: What do those terms, inclusion, wellbeing, diversity, mean to you? Is there an example in your life you can think of where you have felt included, or excluded, where you have felt content, or stressed, where you have felt different to the people around you? What traditions and aspects from your culture (where different or not from your peers) that are important to you and why?
A good way to start a script is setting yourself a question, describe something important to you, or interview yourself on a topic. It can be written like a dialogue (conversation) or narrate your story. You should look at the SOLIS resource library’s many digital story examples to see the unlimited creative ways of telling a story.
For examples of storyboarding, please see the SOLIS Digital Storytelling Handbook (page 43 and 44): https://www.solis-project.eu/resources/
A storyboard is a detailed plan for you to imagine your story – content, structure and timeframe (up to 2 minutes):
