10/21 Workshop: Tell Your Story Now…Digitally!
Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Digital stories derive their power by weaving images, music, narrative and voice together, thereby giving deep dimension and vivid color to characters, situations, experiences, and insights.
Tell your story now…digitally.
~Leslie Rule, Center for Digital Storytelling
This hands-on workshop takes the digital storytelling conversation on teaching to the next level, providing you with an opportunity to develop your working knowledge of the tools required to assemble a digital story. In order to better understand the production process, you’ll create your own short digital story incorporating sound, video, images, and text. This session is designed to build confidence with these tools in a supportive environment that will allow you to get the experience necessary to incorporate digital storytelling exercises into your class.
Participants should have basic computer knowledge, including Internet use, ability to navigate the computer’s directory system, and ability to design simple electronic documents.
