If you want to create stories the family can enjoy on contemporary digital devices, this how-to book is for you -- grandmother or not. You can turn boxes of photos, old documents, audiocassettes, and 8 mm movies into stories. Or, you can start with existing video and digital photos. It's all about the storytelling.

Despre autor

I may have inherited my flair for storytelling from my father. I heard him spin a lot of good tales as I was growing up. Then came my degree in journalism and a lifelong career in many kinds of communication.I served more than 14 years in various management positions (including president and chief paid staff) of Texas Safety Association, which was a not-for-profit statewide educational organization.Along the way, I also served for 9 years as media contractor for Region 6 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (5 states and the Indian Nations via the Bureau of Indian Affairs Indian Highway Safety Program). My duties there included writing educational materials for Region 6 entities and their partners.These jobs gave me the opportunity to tell stories of organizations and people who made a positive difference in the lives of others.In retirement, I'm still telling stories. My focus now is on uplifting fiction for adults and children's stories.

About the Author


This digital book is dedicated to Mammy, my maternal grandmother. It is intended to be a resource for the many young-at-heart grandmothers who suddenly have free time. Perhaps you've recently retired and have asked yourself, Now what? The what could include community volunteer work and more service in your congregation. I hope you will also consider some digital family storytelling. Unless you do it, many important people may be buried in family photo albums on the bookshelf rarely touched by your grandchildren who are immersed in a digital world. Learning a few new digital tricks for their sake can be rewarding for you and for them.

You are invited to skip around this guide for your own purposes. You may already be comfortable with digital sources, formats, and outputs. In that case, you may still enjoy some insights into crafting a good story.

If you are expecting your first grandchild, I hope you will go first to Chapter 8 Telling your New Grandchild's Story in Real Time. For sure, this is a lot easier than turning those old analog files into digital stories. But getting ready for real-time digital storytelling for the first grandchild does require some preparation. You'll need to have the right gear from the get-go and enough experience to use it during your first meeting.

If you are experienced at family digital storytelling and you already have grandchildren, you may want to go straight to the last chapter Creating Digital Delights for your Grandchild. There you will find examples of stories and videos I have created. These creations with music, photos, and clip art are not for commercial distribution -- they are for my personal use in delighting my grandson. I hope you will be inspired to create your own digital stories using similar techniques.

Wherever you start and however you use this ebook, please remember that it is offered as a guide from one grandmother to another. I'd love to hear your grandmother stories on my blog at http://www.TheDigitalGrandmother.com/. Thank you for your interest in this grandmother's guide.
