students making digital stories?

      Don’t put all interview cut some out. Pick great songs that have a connection with your
      To you: I would let them have more time we barly even got the credits. To students:
       Don’t waste a second you need all of it to make it just right
      Different music more spacing. It’s fun and a lot of hard work, but make sure you stay on
      Cut the music longer then you think.

       and don’t waste time.
      I wish we could have more time to work on it.
      I really wouldn’t change it. I would tell the students to work together do equl amount of
       work. Have things you all like not just one person. Not let some one take over every thing
       and have them do it there way and have every thing what they want. Help your group.
      I wouldt change anything. My advise is to try to do something to help.
      I wouldn’t change anything in this project. I would tell other students to do there best
       with it and have fun.
      I wouldn’t change it. The advice I would give is to really work as a team and choose the
       movie clips carfully.
      I wouldn’t chang much it was fun. I would tell others to get good music so it attracts
       attention. Also good pictures too.
      I wouldn’t change anything. The advice I would give is pay attention to the teacher and
       get along with your group.
      I would not I think it turned out good.
      Maybe add more. Then when you make it, it really helps you with you understanding of
       computers and tecnolegy
      Just take your time it will all come together in the end if you do your very best. I
       wouldn’t change close to nothing cause it was great!
      I wouldn’t change much only to make it longer. The advice I would give is that you
       should believe in your heart and do what is right and also try your hardest.
      I would make the movies longer and maybe get more information before we start and
       more time. Make sure you have a lot of info.
      I would tell the other kids to make sure they listen well and be very creative. What I
       would change would have to be take out some of the interview and only talk about the
       important things that would help people learn more.
      You have to put the Star Wars theme in their. Only if it goes with your thing you pick.

       to your teacher and instructions, and just have fun with it. Use your imagination and just
       do the best you can.

      I would use some quotes. My advice is that audio is very powerful choose music
       carefully. And to not use to much interview.
      Make sure it’s a topic you don’t know much about so you can learn something you didn’t
       know before!
      I would tell people to use their time wisely and you want to get along with your partners
       because you don’t have time to fight or to screw around. Don’t get caught up in music but
       you really want meaningful music in your iMovie that has to do with the topic.
      Get more info. Do the interview after we got info. Get more music. Work on interview
       more. Get a lot of information. Have good questions in the interview.
      I wouldn’t really change anything! It is a really great project!
      I would give them more time so they could make them better than ours. Don’t space off
       you can’t wast much time
      Maybe you could have one group do the major of year, if is one. My advice to other
       students is to do something that you will want research. Because if you don’t like the
       topic you want have a good attidue towards it.
      Make sure you have a good interview. Use lots of audio and get lots of info, have good
       music that goes with your story or topic.
      To plan... before because if you don’t it is hard to start your imovie and make sure you
       don’t go over the limit with songs... make sure it makes sence... like the music goes with
       the topic and make it creative... and make the watcher interested otherwise... they aren’t
       as cool! I LIKED IT ALOT!
      That pick your jobs, and try to do only your job and more effort. So everyone will have a
       chance to do something.
      I don’t think I would change much. Mabey go through things more and little things like
       that. The advice I would give is do use your time wisely and know a lot of what you are
       going to be doing.
      I would change it by some of the music we used. I would say that you need to use only
       the important parts.
      I wouldn’t make any change Its perfect. The advice I would give is to do it as a team
       each take responsibility. It takes a lot of effect plus find something that is a real intrest.
      I wouldn’t really change any thing. The advice that I would give is If you have time use
      I would probly say that I would change some clips and music. Advice: That this
       program is really fun and it helps you learn about other problems in the world.
      My advice would be to make a script before you do anything because it’s so much easier
       to look off that than to start from scratch.
      More time to work on it, I’d tell the others to have fun, get into it, and do your best!
      Take your time and don’t slow off your job.
      I would put more facts about steroids. Put alot of facts and credits in then you can worry
       about your music, and names, and just have a good time doing this.
      If I could change our presentation I would add more facts, I would tell about the things it
       did to guys and to gals. I would tell them to get a topic they wanted to learn in and get a
       lot of info.
      I would change more time we had. I would tell kids to have patience.
Digital Storytelling: Final Self Evaluation (Student)

      I would have kept telling the people who wern’t doing anything to do something.
       Advice: Make sure everyone is doing something. Don’t let anyone boss you around or
       take all the credit for what you did to.
      Maybe add more of the music to get more emotion. And also add more pictures.
       Continue with the great topics and idea’s. Also insted of doing music you like put some
       music that actually has something to do with your project.
      I would use a lot more pictures in a future iMovie. I would tell other people to be
       creative, to think outside the box.
      Spend a lot of time on it.
      I really wouldn’t change anything cause I thought that everything was fund to do. I
       would recommend to get alot of information because the more information you have the
       better they are. So do a good job and remember stay off the roids!
      Nothing I think our imove was perfect. That should make in a story because people can
       follow a story.
      Do not slack off. You can make the story relly good all you have to do is find a nice big
      Do a good Interview pick the right kind of music
      Make sure that your interview isn’t debated or messed up. And be sure to have the right
       music at the right time.
      I would make it a longer time to work. Get working on it right away.
      I would try to get more than 15-30 seconds on a song, and to use more effects. My
       advice is to make it powerful, and really tear jerking. Make sure the songs match the
      I would change this project by having more time. I would tell future people that you
       shouldn’t waste time and to choose people that get along with eachother.
      I would put more info in like: graphs and statistics. I would also find different music
       other student should capture the interest in the beginning. They should have some info
       with the topic.
      STAY ON TASK! DON’T WASTE TIME! and last but not least have an idea at what
       your doing! and good luck!
      Use your time wisely, work really hard, and just have fun!
      More time to do this project. Don’t waste any time

       done and downloaded, edit, get pictures, then the music, and start typing the credits at the
      Pick a fun topic to do. Find more info.
      Edit a little better. Find the music that fits the part just right.
      Work hard and you should get it to become great.
      I would change nothing.
      Maybe a different topic, a more sadder topic.
      Pick a good subject, use good music, arguing wastes time.
      To put more picture in. Not to talk and to make sure you have a topic that you like and to
       take part in the project as much as you can. Not to talk to other people in other groups.
