Seven primaries across North Ayrshire took part in Digital Storytelling during NDLW19. We have created digital stories in previous years, using Online Word and Sway. This year, we went for something a bit different. Pupils had to create a story suitable for younger pupils, using PowerPoint.
The idea behind a digital story is that one school starts the story on the Monday, it travels around the other six for the rest of the week before going back to the first school on the Friday, to finish the story. It’s a brilliant way to improve literacy as well as build on digital skills, allow discussion around copyright and allow children to work collaboratively.
A Powerpoint with a background, title and character was created and each school was allocated two slides. Schools also had to credit their images from copyright free websites.
The link for the PowerPoint Show is below. It was created by pupils at Blacklands Primary, Gateside Primary, Largs Primary, Loudoun Montgomery Primary, Mayfield Primary, St Bridget’s Primary and St John’s Primary.
We hope you enjoy our story, the pupils certainly had great fun creating new characters and developing the story!
