As I continue to learn about new applications and platforms that I can use to create digital stories, I find myself becoming a bit overwhelmed. After viewing some of my classmates digital stories, I am reminded that I have much to learn. My first digital story was definitely not my best work, but I am content with the grade that I received because the message that I wished to portray was delivered. I received some tips from my peer review that I plan to take notice of moving forward.
I am currently working on module two’s mobile story and I have ideas about what I want to do, but executing it may be a challenge. I would like to utilize Adobe Spark in combination with a few other applications that I discovered in the App Store, but I am unsure if Spark Page has the capabilities that I am looking for. Today after reading the some of module two readings, I tried creating a sample story using Spark page. I was impressed with how vivid everything looked when I was done. Now if I can figure out how incorporate what I did into my next mobile story, I will be one step closer to creating another meaningful story.
The Instagram account that is linked to my WordPress has also gained quite a few new followers. Through sharing some of my creative work and creative posts, I did gain a few followers that are digital story tellers. I was seeking advice on how to create meaningful stories and I was happy to receive a message back from one of them. I will continue to use Instagram as a marketing source, for inspiration, and to learn from others. I am grateful for the advice that I received and look forward to putting that information to good use.
