Digital storytelling at its most basic core is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories…However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips, and/or music.  (Digital Storytelling)

Such a fun and creative way to spice up any lesson!

I created a simple, personal digital story using Adobe Spark as an example for personal introductions or hobby based sharing. Adobe Spark is super easy to use and so convenient. There are 3 utilization tools or apps inside Adobe Spark; Spark Post, Spark Page and Spark Video. Each giving creative lead way to your finger tips.

Spark Post – Create stunning social graphics – in seconds                                               Spark Page – Turn words into beautiful web stories – in minutes                                Spark Video – Creare compelling animated video – in minutes                                   Adobe Spark

I created this digital story within minutes while using my son’s iPad (kids, twins and hubby were sound asleep after a fun filled day at the water park. Mommy gets to enjoy the peace and quite and catch up on some work!). To get started, download the app from the App Store and you are on your way. Just click, type and presto! Ok, it’s not that quick but almost! Seriously guys, this app/digital tool is super easy, the layouts and themes are really streamlined (tons to chose from), adding photos is just a click away, and adding text is as easy as well I am not sure but it’s super easy (did I say it’s super easy enough? Because it is).  AND when you add a photo from the web, it automatically gives credit to the photo source! Life saver!

My family and I are currently vacationing at Disney world for Easter, so I thought I would share some of our memories. Enjoy a sneak peak into our Disney crazed lives. Stay tuned for more additions to the story when our trip concludes next weekend.
