For October 1, 2007: Practice constructing a digital story at the Ken Burns PBS Web site. Mix together archival images, narration, and sound to create a Civil War era documentary. The interactive online tool allows you to order and manipulate the images and transitions on a timeline. Once you have completed your movie, you can email it to yourself. This would be a great way to begin the technology portion of your storytelling unit.
