Audiovisual Storytelling for NGOs

Rating: 0/5

Digital Storytelling (DS) is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. This is done with the help of a variety of multimedia, including photos, graphics, audio (sound, speech, music), video, and Web publishing tools. These short, personal multimedia stories can be created everywhere, on any subject, and shared electronically all over the world.

There are numerous ways that DS can be used. In this course we will concentrate on DS as a tool for self-representation and for social inclusion. DS can raise awareness, change mindsets and give a voice to those who normally have none. Digital Stories can be tools in calling to action, as a marketing tool, for branding and even more as advocacy tools to help shape public policy.

The objective of this course is to introduce representatives of NGOs to DS techniques and how to use them effectively. We will get familiar with the latest WEB 2.0 & 3.0 tools and expand our knowledge in video- and audio-production. We will cover the key elements of DS as well as provide hands-on opportunities for the participants to create their own Digital Stories.

Besides a lot of practical examples (learning by doing) the participants will create their own multimedia learning journal throughout the course.​
