From Text to Video and Back: Digital Storytelling and the Printed Word
Digital stories are short, multimedia narratives told in a personal and compelling manner. This workshop will highlight their use and potential. It will consist of three segments. Each segment features an original 3 to 4 minutes digital story. Each story will highlight a particular aspect of digital storytelling and its relationship to the book and to the learning process. The audience will have the chance to react to each story in light of how it contributes to that aspect of the relationship, and to offer ideas about the potential and pitfalls of this new medium. The stories will emphasize the following aspects: story #1 digital/video versus traditional/book storytelling, story #2 digital storytelling for research exposé, and story #3 digital storytelling as a method to lure our increasingly visual and technology driven culture back to the written word. The presenters created two of the featured stories.
