Since this is my first attempt at creating a digital story, I chose to use a chapter from the Bible so I could spend time exploring the process rather than creating a new story. I look forward to doing that later while using original video clips and photos as well. I initially attempted this project with Windows Live MovieMaker, but it was just way too cumbersome, so I went to my faithful MacBook Pro and used iMovie. It was really intuitive to use and I am eager to move forward with some original material to do more projects. I have already had two of my teachers ask me to show them how to make a digital story. There are many exciting possibilities for the classroom!
I created two versions of this presentation. The first one has no words superimposed over the images whereas the second one does. I wanted to experiment with the differences in effect on viewers.
