The Elements for a good story:
Point of View: It has to do with the meaning of the story, and who you’re telling the story to.
Dramatic Question: Some good stories have a question that has to be answered and that hook you.
Emotional Content: Includes humor, anger, stress, happiness and desire. It helps us understand what is going on in the story.
Your voice. It gives deeper meaning in the sense that you can change the mood of the story just with your voice. It is also better than just having something written there.
SoundTrack: Adds another part of meaning to the story, it should also compliment it (go well with it).
Pacing: The audience needs time to process the information, so speak at a slightly slow pace. Also, in parts which are exciting you might speed up a little.
Economy: You need balance in your story. Don’t just use words, also use pictures to help explain the words.
My presentation tool was Fotobabble. I think Fotobabble is a good tool to use for digital storytelling. It allows you to put pictures and also slide through the pictures at different times. You can also change the background of the picture to make it look nicer. Another feature that Fotobabble has, is recording audio.
