Apps & Other Options for Digital Media Storytelling
It seems every week another app comes out that makes building a story easier than ever. Since the release of Microsoft's PowerPoint and Apple's Keynote, people have been able to create narrated slide presentations through which they can tell their stories. With the ready availability of Apple's iMovie and Microsoft's Movie Maker, they can create videos. The products of these programs can be shared via the internet through email and social media applications, because they are digital products. Educators have been experimenting with a variety of apps, some made especially for working with children, but that can be suitable to adults new to digital storytelling. Below are some of the apps and other resources I have explored. On educators' websites on digital storytelling you can find plenty of other options!
Professor Eileen D. Crowley, Associate Professor of Liturgy, Arts, and Communications at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, created this website. She is developing a project called Digital Media Storytelling as Ministry (New York: Church Publishing, forthcoming), a book designed for lay and ordained leaders in the churches, as well as for leaders in non-profit organizations, especially those engaged in the work of justice and empowerment of the otherwise voiceless. The materials on this website include Professor Crowley's own photography and video, as well as the creative work of some of her students and participants in her faith formation offerings, all of whom have given her permission to share their work. Prof. Crowley and the other contributors retain their copyrights to their work . As for the website itself: Copyright 2015 Eileen D. Crowley.All rights reserved.
