Cowbird Activity 2015-16

Our second digital storytelling activity of 2015-16 explores narrated stories of 100 words. The stories are hosted on which displays a story with a single image, never fully viewable within the frame and so requiring the viewer to interact with the image to discover what is hidden.

Cowbird is perhaps unique in the way it limits the story to a single full screen image but in doing so it focuses the viewers attention on that image. That’s a rare but valuable thing these days. Cowbird works particularly well when used with narration allowing the viewer to listen to the authors voice while observing and interacting with the image.
