Thematic Brainstorm

What’s our/my story? We can go virtually anywhere we want with a theme like this, and that is exactly what makes the theme work. We are the creators of our own story, digital storytelling is just a method in which we express that story. The methods in which we express our story, whether it be video, audio, images, etc. doesn’t matter… as long as our story is put out into the world. We as a class could take this wherever we wanted to go! The sky’s the limit for how we express ourselves online, and it doesn’t have to be nonfiction. It could be an entertaining alternate reality sown together through our media presences to create plot points or exhilarating readings, or a nonfiction account of some event like news reporters. As long as its our story, nothing can stop us.

It is really interesting and a different idea to write ‘our story’ as a nonfiction story. My view, and most of the posts I have seen, have talked about the theme as being a telling of our lives and past experiences, but technically, our story could be any story we create. This idea just broadens the theme more which could be a good thing when it comes to not limiting us, but a bad thing when it comes to comparing or analyzing people’s posts and stories.
