Using Digital Storytelling to Write Feature Stories
For this Journalism assignment, students were asked to write a 400-500 word feature story, add images, and create a digital story. Once they finished their research and interviews, students wrote their feature and added their own photos and images from the web. Using their written work as the script for their voiceover, they also added background music to enhance their story. Peer response (through email), revision, and reflection were the follow-up activities.
