Digital Story Created With a Cell Phone

We have been assigned the task of creating a digital story about when we knew we wanted to be an educator using only our cell phones.  At first I thought this would be next to impossible!  I have a basic cell phone that can snap a quick picture, take a 30 second video, send and receive texts, and of course handle phone calls.  I do not have a data plan that allows me to surf the web or email, so I was fretting over how I could get this information from my phone to a video editing program on my computer.  Thankfully, my phone’s charger is a USB cable, and thankfully that allows me to upload my basic photos and videos from my phone to my computer.  WHEW!

I outlined my basic ideas and then shot and recorded stills and some video.  I had to be brief with the video because I don’t have an SD card to hold video longer than 30 second on my phone.  In the end, I had some issues with Window Movie Maker accepting some of my converted files and had to delete a few shots.  I think overall I was able to convey my story.
