‘Digital Storytelling’ is the new buzzword for using web technologies and digital media to construct meaning around experiences in a way that can be communicated to others. Aimed at anyone who is involved in designing learning activities for others (any level, any subject) this workshop will demonstrate, discuss and develop your skills in using different approaches to teaching and learning through Digital Storytelling.

This workshop looks at why stories are a powerful and effective way of communicating with an audience and how the technique can be used effectively for a wide range of purposes; learning, publicity and marketing, community engagement and more.

There will be plenty of opportunities to get ‘hands on’ with the technology as well as offering you a chance to explore how you might use the technique for your own practice and share ideas with others.

Topics:
• Why stories are an effective method of communication • The different forms digital storytelling can take • Using web-based storytelling tools • How digital storytelling can be an used for learning and assessment • Generating interest and engagement with projects and research • Finding and using web-based media • Support offered by other JISC services
