Pros and Cons of Digital Storyboarding

Seeing as how I'm not actually finished with the digital storyboard, I definitely have some cons to talk about with this technology. My main concern is that it just takes too much time to make it interesting. We hand-drew our pictures, and we have nobody to blame for that decision, although it did help us avoid any copyright issues. Other than that, I don't have any large concerns, the technology is rather straight forward and unique. A pro for this technology is that it mixes up the dynamic in class and can add a fun new element of teaching. It's always fun for students to learn through a new medium, and who doesn't love a home-made movie? Overall I think it's a great thing to do for the classroom, and after doing a few of them I'm sure I will be much quicker with the whole process.
