The Flexible Understanding Now Network (FUNN) has set us a new challenge for October, that of telling a story using visuals (show) and audio (tell). Ruth's blogpost gives lots of interesting reading and possibilities of sites to use. We are supposed to do four stories over the month of October and I am behind with the task already.

Last weekend I played around with one of the tools I had used before, Animoto, and rediscovered some short video clips I did a couple of years ago. I enjoyed viewing them and posting them to Twitter. I also realized sadly that though a couple had been posted to this blog others were on a now defunct ning network. So before I go any further with this October task I am going to post them here!

Ruth has suggested a number of tools we can use and I have listed them below. I will be trying to explore and use a few over the coming weeks. But as I am currently in arrears I had better get on with creating something! It will also a good learning for me to upload to my Youtube account as I have never done so before.

Here are some digital storytelling tools which I'll try to explore for a start: Storybird, animoto, xtranormal, glogster, voicethread, animasher, makebelievecomics, vuvox, prezi.
