Playing with Puppet Pal 2

on November 17, 2013

Alan Levine, cogdogblog, inspired my #eci831 class with his What Mean Ye Storytelling  presentation on November 12, 2013.  Alan provided us with a number of interesting links about storytelling.  One of the key points that he made was that the creation of the story was as important or more important than the tool you use to share your story.  This being said the Wiki space Web 2.0 50+ Ways to Tell a Story provides a 1-2-3 process for telling  a story.  The resource links are amazing!

My son was watching me search through the numerous tools on the 50+ Ways to tell a Story Wiki space and he grew impatient with me trying to find a tool and organize a story.  There is something to be said for the spontaneity of children opposed to my desire to find the perfect outcome.  He suggested we make a story using  Puppet Pal 2 app which was recommended by Jessica.

We sat down together and at first had selected the space theme but we were disappointed that their is not a space ship to choose.  The space background also does not scroll like the town one does.  Ben thought it was important that we could move our puppets.  Here is our silly story about Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus.

Now I want to give the 1-2-3 process for telling a story as suggested by Alan.

What storytelling processes have you tried?  What are the keys to your writing process?  What tools do you like to use?
