Digital Storytelling in Teaching
TRAINING PROGRAM FOR TEACHERS
What is Digital Storytelling?
Digital storytelling describes a simple, creative process through which people with little or no experience of computers gain skills needed to tell a personal story as a two-minute film using predominantly still images. These films can then be streamed on the web or broadcast on television.
As a method, Digital Storytelling combines techniques to develop literacy and storytelling skills with an introduction to basic Information and Communication Technology (ICT), using group exercises and individual processes that develop confidence and build self-esteem.
Digital storytelling has been used in a education for developing students’ professional identity, and as a tool for self reflection whereby students make and share digital stories about their practice experiences. As a practice it helps to foster higher-order thinking skills, develops digital literacy, and is, “the aggregating element capable of turning our students into true 21st century learners” (Ribeiro, 2012).
Who is the program for?
The course is open for teachers and trainers who want to learn about digital storytelling and apply the method in their own lessons and training programs. The know-how of the course has been built upon our long teaching experience and work in many international research teams.
