As part of week 3’s assignment for the open digital storytelling class I’m taking (ds106), we were asked to reflect on two articles:
- Tim O’Reilly’s “What is Web 2.0?”
- Bryan Alexander and Alan Levine’s “Web 2.0 Storytelling: The Emergence of a New Genre”
Web 2.o stories (which can include digital stories and transmedia stories) are cross-media, exploratory, and unpredictable. To commemorate this, here’s my story about storytelling 2.o using SlideRocket. (This is my first time using this tool, so I’m celebrating the experimental aspect of Web 2.0 storytelling!)
To give you a feel for the varied nature of Storytelling 2.0, I’ve listed some Web 2.0 stories, you might want to explore.
- Skeleton Creek
- 2009: A true story
- Tell a story in 5 frames
- Playing for keeps
- Postmodern Sass
- We feel fine
- Alternate Reality Games
- World without oil
- Hamlet on Facebook
- Cathy’s Book
- Loser Queen
More about SlideRocket
SlideRocket is a presentation tool which can be used for digital storytelling, education, presentations, and marketing (since it comes with an analytics component).
To learn more about SlideRocket, check out this video.
Additional digital storytelling resources
More digital storytelling tools you might want to explore can be found in my Diigo list of digital storytelling resources and tools: Digital storytelling.
(I had a bit of difficulty including multiple hyperlinks on a single SlideRocket slide, so I’ve listed the individual links below.)
