Picture Stories

Today in class we watched a video shot completely on a cell phone. It won awards. It’s embedded below in this post.

I thought the way the video was set up was great. It used pictures of words to tell a story. I think this would be a great way for us to share stories in reading class.

If your taking pictures over the break with a digital camera or a cell phone, take some of different words. We will put all the word pictures together on flickr and use them to make stories.

If you are not in our class and want to contribute your pictures, visit this wiki page for more information:

Here is the video we watched and another one that uses the same type of storytelling. Enjoy, and go take some pictures of words!

  1. That is an awesome idea. You might also consider some unique Tag and ask others to tag their “word” pics in Flickr to add to your collection. Would be a great eye opener to your students to see how real world collaboration works. I love the idea. I plan on sharing it with my teachers. Thanks for sharing it with me!

    Do you have any student samples… I too am a teacher, and very interested in this concept.
