Digital Storytelling Workshop: Technology for Human Use
Digital stories, Travel Learn, internships, international, Wales, BBC
Digital Storytelling is the use of media technology to tell stories with digital images, narration, and sound through personal voice about people, places, or events. Advances in technology have given the average person the means to tell and share their stories in an effective and affecting manner. The structure and technology have been adapted internationally for a number of projects including the focus of a BBC initiative, Capture Wales. It is a useful tool to document personal experiences such as “oral” histories, for children to tell their stories, psychological expression or intervention, academic portfolio, and for recording personal stories as people participate in news events or other activities. The workshop will focus on digital storytelling, its many uses, helpful suggestions and samples for sharing with participants
