Storytelling facilitates connections between people and ideas, and links the past, present, and future. Storytelling also can advance understanding of complex ideas, and promote inclusion and diversity in the classroom.
While digital storytelling has its roots in video production, today it makes use of a wide range of technologies. It can be a compelling and powerful learning approach for any academic discipline or topic.
This workshop will begin with a discussion about some of the skills that students can develop and practice through digital storytelling. Then we’ll talk through some different pedagogical approaches to incorporating digital storytelling in the classroom. Finally, we’ll discuss tools that can be used for creating and sharing digital stories, with a special focus on StoryMaps and Pressbooks.
