Drawing up a storyboard seems tricky. Students don't want to commit pen to paper, but jot words, draw on the back of the storyboard, anything rather than 'spoil' the boxes. Aba-Sah writes about this in one of the WP4 deliverables. So how can we identify the stumbling blocks to storyboarding? And what can we do about them? Perform a juxtapositioned story that explains the problem. Perhaps we could do that as a team. The blocks we probably should tackle are finding a story and identifying characters. If we were pitching a script for a film, then we would need to write the concept (http://www.movieoutline.com/articles/how-writing-concept-first-will-help-your-movie-script-and-your-pitch.html) but I don't think the JuxtaLearn project needs to go this deep into storyboarding because we're not aiming to produce a film for its own sake, but to think about and learn about the topic. Therefore, identifying characters and setting of the topic, thereby producing a basic story is enough for collaborative discussion and learning. Hence, if a team of learners of storyboarding were to put together a storyboard of storyboarding, then the stumbling blocks to concentrate on would be
- finding a story
- identifying characters
Now I want to create a quiz or two on this topic. How do I create a quiz? And why, when I publish this does it not appear? Only the stumbling blocks are there at http://trickytopic.juxtalearn.net/trickytopic/storyboarding/, and nothing else to share with others.
