In class last week as were talking about digital storytelling, someone mentioned the “choose your own adventure” stories from childhood. I loved reading those types of books, so decided to bring that concept into the 21st century.
I actually had this idea a few years ago as a training session with Residence Life staff and created a powerpoint. I adjusted the storyline and paths for this exercise and used WordPress to create a series of pages which created the story and multiple possible choices. My point in doing this was to have students understand how one seemingly simple, innocent decision can spiral down into something very serious (or alternately, how a good decision will likely lead to more good decisions and outcomes.)
