During the first ten minutes of class, write your final summary of the semester on Miller’s Digital Storytelling, Chapter 25, “Creating Your Own Showcase.” As a part of your summary, write briefly and provide a link to where you showcase your work now. For example, do you have an ePortfolio on OpenLab or elsewhere? We will discuss this before moving ahead with the remainder of class for work on your collaborative project.
During the first ten minutes of class, write your penultimate summary from Miller’s Digital Storytelling, Chapter 24, “Working as a Digital Storyteller.” What were some of the important takeaways from this chapter? What advice might apply more broadly to PTW careers in general? We will discuss these after you have a chance to write and post your own observations based on the reading.
For background on building interactive fiction with Twine, I would recommend watching these videos:
And skimming the official Twine 2.0 Guide.
During the first ten minutes of class, quickly write your summary memo of Miller’s Chapter 16, “The Internet” in Digital Storytelling. We will discuss it after you have posted your responses and then transition to building your HTML-based digital stories.
For today’s class, you read chapter 15 in Miller’s Digital Storytelling textbook. Write a summary memo about the reading and copy-and-paste it into a comment made to this blog entry. In your response, consider: what is the difference between narratology and ludology? What is a platform? What are some challenges of non-linear storytelling?
Copy-and-paste your details memo for Project 4 into a comment made to this blog entry. We will use this document today to create the Structure document.
Over the weekend, you wrote your Project 4 planning document. Please copy-and-paste this document into a comment made to this blog post. We will use class time to work on the next step in the project.
For today’s class, you read Miller’s Chapter 14, “Using Digital Storytelling to Inform.” Of course, this chapter has a lot of relevance for our current project and much of the kinds of work that you will do as PTW practitioners. Summarize your reading in a new memo, and copy-and-paste your summary into a comment made to this blog post during the first ten minutes of class.
For today’s class, you read Miller’s “Using Digital Storytelling for Promotion and Advertising” chapter. You’ve likely experienced or seen examples of the things that she discusses in this chapter. Use the beginning of class to write a summary of the reading and post it as a comment to this blog entry. We will discuss it briefly before continuing with Project 3 and Project 4.
For today’s class, we are catching up on reading pushed back in the interest of moving Project 3 forward. Looking specifically at Chapter 11, Beginning a Project and Chapter 12, Using Digital Storytelling to Teach and Train, let’s spend a slightly longer time than usual–15 minutes–writing summaries of these two chapters. Write your summary in a single memo and copy-and-paste it into a comment on this blog post at the end of the 15 minutes. Then, we will discuss the two chapters, the upcoming midterm exam, and Project 3. The remaining time will be used for working on Project 3.
