I create a storyboard for a Romeo and Juliet assignment on read, write, think.org. This seemed really easy to use and very kid friendly. However, after creating the assignment, I realized you can't save it. You can only print it out. I find this very frustrating, especially as we are trying to move toward digital media and using less paper in the classroom.
Here, I've included my SoundCloud recording talking about digital storytelling. This was a different experience for me, and the idea of recording creates a little more anxiety for me. I'm not used to the idea or listening to what I'm saying. In class, you can repeat or change how you say things to help students understand. When typing you can easily make changes before you publish. This is one aspect I would find difficult with a flipped or blended classroom. Often you create digital recordings to explain content and students can listen to it again and again if they need. I'm just not used to that. I'm used to being able to respond directly to students to help answer their questions and fit their needs. I haven't used soundcloud before, but it is easy to use and I can imagine (getting used to it) and using it in my classroom. I'm not saying I won't record things three times before I publish it, but, you know, I think I could use it in the future.
