Storymaking > Storytelling

An Introduction to Digital Storytelling - presented for Thompson Rivers University

A hook of interest, the shape of a narrative, a character to care about, suspension of belief, using less, media metaphors are techniques that we can integrate into our work as educators. While technology provides plenty of tools to tell stories, more compelling is what they afford us to practice and develop our own skills of making and incorporating story not only into teaching, but many forms of expression.

TRU's Open Learning Research Fellow Alan Levine will provide a brief overview on his work and experiences with digital storytelling. And with TRU's Brian Lamb, offer an invitation to participate in "The You Show", a hands-on participatory digital storytelling seminar: http://youshow.trubox.ca

  5. Participating in ds106 eliminated my fears—- my fears about my

    abilities, my fears about the online community, my fears about technology, and my fears about sharing ideas. blog.neverthesameriver.com/final-movie-my-ds106-adventure-spring-2012/
  6. ds106 has given this me the conviction that I, at

    72, can make videos, that tell my story beautifully, thoughtfully, and truthfully. The community aspect gives me the security that, no how busy I am with other things, I can always "drop into" ds106 and continue to learn more. margaretherrick.com/blog/
