CANCELLED (Friday 2 & Saturday 3 October 2009)
During this two-day interactive workshop, participants will create their own digital story. This will involve training in how to use the required software, and discussions about the methodology and how participants can adapt it to their particular teaching contexts.
Digital stories weave together images, music and voice-over narrations into engaging two to three minute movies. The stories, told in the first person, are inspired by significant events in the narrator's life and/ or can be based on a certain theme.
Digital storytelling has been embraced by educators in a variety of contexts:
- for developing reflective practice in teacher education programs
- vocational education training
- intercultural education
- K12 multiliteracies and adult literacy, and
- TESOL and second language learning and teaching.
