Storyboard like a Pro on iPad
Student voice is important for engaging and empowering students. Students need to learn how to use their voice to express their opinions, share their story and advocate for others or themselves. Students come from diverse backgrounds and are eager to tell their stories. The whole industry is benefitting from this diversity of voice. When voices are being heard, people start listening. When people are listening empathy, understanding, and caring start to happen and change can occur. A challenge for students is gaining their voice and learning to simplify their message to clearly tell their story.
Storyboarding is a tool used in visual media to plan shots and camera angles to help frame and highlight the important characters, props, or actions happening. Storyboarding can also be useful for students to show their ideas in a simple way. Often when students create a story they are so engrossed in the details that they spend too much time worrying about it and forget the main focus that they are trying to convey. After planning their storyboards, students can create a movie or animation.
In our CREATE Program at Sisler we use Procreate on iPad. It is a great app to express creativity and produce a storyboard.
- Students will be given a 4 arc story - introduction, development, twist, resolution
- They create one storyboard for each arc of the story within a set time usually one minute.
- They will then choose one of those storyboards to refine. In this way students are able to focus and show their main idea before working on adding more detail.
This activity can be applied across the curriculum for students to share their knowledge and stories across different subject areas, ages and grades at any time of the year including a fun back-to-school activity.
Below you will find some resources to help you with this activity.
- A Keynote presentation that gives an overview and highlights the steps on using Procreate, going through the lesson to create a storyboard and refine one frame of the storyboard.
- A quick start video on getting started with Procreate
- A video on how to animate on Procreate
