What to do today

  1. Form groups of 2-4 people. Register your groups here.
  2. Choose a topic that matches a Georgia Performance Standard or Common Core State Standard. (The best topics are ones that show cycles, systems, formulas, strategies, processes, etc.)
  3. Start drawing your storyboard or writing your script.

Storyboard

A storyboard is a sequence of drawings, typically with some directions and dialogue, representing the shots planned for a movie or television production. What will be on the background? What will we hear? What will we see?

You do not need to draw screens (It will be fun if you do!) but you should plan what props and narration you will include in different screens.

  • Create your storyboard as a Google Slide, add a slide for each sequence, work on your Google slide collaboratively.
    OR
  • You can also create your storyboard as a Google Doc, if you find it more useful.
    OR
  • Just use pen and paper (in which case scan or take a picture and share it from your Google Drive or Dropbox).

Two simple storyboard examples: Example 1 | Example 2

Before we finish Day 3 of the Stop Motion project, turn in the link to your storyboard/script here.

Preparing for Wednesday

  1. You may want to check out a tripod for the project. Bring your student ID to OIT, Aderhold 232 and ask for a tripod and a connector (for iPad and iPhones).
  2. As always, if you have questions or concerns about this course, talk to me before you leave, or send me an email at lh81655@uga.edu.

It takes a bit more than copy and paste to migrate your draft to the real website. How your webpage looks matters, so spend the time and make them look nice!
