Nancy Pegg is one of our fantastic Discovery Educator Network Members from Middleton Burney Elementary in Putnam County. She’s actually in the Bass Capital of the World – which made it a very tempting place for relocation. This summer she sat in on a one day session on Digital Storytelling and decided to sahre some great tips for those also tempted to try their hand at this craft.
I have a couple tips that might help beginners with Movie Maker,unitedstreaming and Photo Story 3. I was having difficulty putting narration in Movie Maker on my laptop. Tip 1: If you break up your narration into shorter segments it will easily allow you to input it on the timeline. Tip 2: Regarding Photo Story 3, I found that I had forgotten to make sure my pictures were jpeg before selecting them for use. (If you use gif images it will look grainy when you have it run full screen in Media Player.) Hope this helps someone else-I wish I had known!!
Thanks Nancy! I’m sure there are others who also will enjoy this tip.
We had a great Back to School Bash at the Tropicana Baseball field and several of our friends from South Florida were able to make it to make it extra special. They have just invited us to their Back to School Bash on Saturday, Aug. 26th 8:15 AM (check in). They are holding it at this really cool place called Wannado City in the Sawgrass Mills Mall, Sunrise, FL. See the their website for driving directions. DEN members anywhere in Florida, need to RSVP to Karen by email: Karen_Seddon@Discovery.com by Aug. 22nd. (Let me know if you’re going to be there too! Danielle_Abernethy@discovery.com.) I encourage all of you to check out this great site, at least virtually.
