Assessment criteria: As part of authoring critiques of digital storytelling in INTE 5340 three criterions are selected from Jason Ohler’s assessment traits.
Digital craftsmanship (Score 1-10: 10 Points)Mastery of media: use media is appropriate, well-crafted, and supports the story. Media application is free of errors.
The use of white-board media creates a 'hand-made' aesthetic. The attention to detail and ability to draw and communicate ideas with this medium as an animation is incredible. The animation appears to be free of smudging or errors yet it doesn’t look overly reproduced digitally, or retouched. The evolution of the drawings takes shape into a larger picture of the lecture to support the story in a very creative fashion.
Flow, organization, pacing (Score 1-10: 10 Points)Information presented makes logical sequential sense; story pace is easy to follow.
The lecture followed a logical sequence as demonstrated by the drawings and animations that evolved over time. The pacing was a little fast for the “deep” concepts but the drawings and animation completely makes up for this by accurate visual depiction.
Problem solving and innovation (Score 1-10: 10 Points)Obstacles to presentation and access to story overcome. Creative use of media that demonstrates innovation.
This video demonstrates a unique ability to express complex interrelated social concepts through the use of visual imagery. The use of a white-board and marker to express the concepts as they take shape over time is really innovative yet accessible.
