Seven things to avoid when making a digital story

1. Telling your story in a straight line

2. Fancy video effects

3. A less than perfect voice recording

4. Corny visual cliches

5. Nothing but show and tell

6.  Twee rhyming poetry

7.  Using other people’s stuff

As you can see as you follow the links, I’m doing a little recycling here because the individual articles are reprised. But this is the first time I’ve laid these out as a Top 7 of digital storytelling tips.

If you find this Top 7 useful, tell other people by linking to it, re-tweeting or pasting the address into your Facebook update. And happy digital storytelling. Thanks.
