Before watching the live session presented by Bryan Aexander and Nicola Allian,
storytelling for me was just a person tell a story in front of people. Storytelling is
the oral format. People need face-toface connects to complete the storytelling.
However, nowadays, the formats of storytelling changes. It is not only one form–oral telling. It uses new technology and new media which called digital storytelling.
I am using blogs to complete my storytelling now which tell a story about what I
think about the storytelling about.
I uses blogs to tell the stories about “media and news literacy” and “what metaliteracy
means to me.” In my blog “Media and News Literacy”, I plugged different pieces of
story into my article to tell a new story about what I understand of media and news
literacy. This is a new format of storytelling which does not need face-to-face contacts.
Storytelling can be presented in blogs, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Digital
Storytelling can have video format, dialogues format and picture format.
During the class of the information literacy course, professor used video to tell a story
about the using of database which help students easier understand how to search articles
on the databases. This is also a form of storytelling that usually people do not think it is
telling a story.
Moreover, I posted the pictures of me, my family and my house online. I did not realize
that that is a form of storytelling until I watch the live session about the digital storytelling.
I used the pictures to tell stories about myself, my family and my house which help people
who do not know me have a sense of feeling about me and my life. Digital storytelling is
everywhere which we may use daily.
