Digital Learning Track: Digital Storytelling
Storytelling is one of the oldest forms of human communication, yet still one of the most effective. We can use stories to create an emotional connection to content, allowing us to present that content in a more engaging and compelling way. In this workshop, we will explore different methods for using multimedia (audio, video, graphics, and text) to create digital narratives to tell the stories behind your content.
- Define digital storytelling.
- Discuss how digital storytelling can allow you to present your content in a compelling way.
- Develop a plan for using digital storytelling to present content in one of your classes.
This class will be offered twice. Please register for the date that is most convenient for you:
1) Thursday, April 6, from 11:00 am - 12:15 pm
2) Wednesday, April 12, from 2:30 - 3:45 pm
