Digital Storytelling (7-day course)

Rating: 5/51 users

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. Whether an instructor creates a Digital Story (as a way to present new material) or students do it by themselves: Whenever DS is used at school, it provides a strong foundation in many different types of literacy which can be labeled as “21st Century Literacy.” Furthermore it can help to foster critical and interpretive thinking and enhance students’ learning experience and motivation.

Outside the world of education DS can be used as a tool for self-representation and for social inclusion, it can raise awareness, change mindsets and give a voice to those who normally have none. Digital Stories can be tools in calling to action, and even more can be used as advocacy tools to help shape public policy.

The objective of this course is to introduce educators, social workers and 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.

The courses
will be held in German!

Teaching cinema in the classroom and beyond Στο πρόγραμμα διερευνήσαμε τη χρησιμότητα των ταινιών στη διδασκαλία και πως μπορούν να δημιουργηθούν εργαστήρια κινηματογράφου σε ένα σχολείο. Ενημερωθήκαμε και χρησιμοποιήσαμε την εφαρμογή Adobe CC Express για τη δημιουργία αφίσας και κόμικς. Έγινε επίσης, λήψη φωτογραφιών στους δρόμους της Λισαβόνας και δημιουργήσαμε μία ταινία μικρού μήκους. Εξοικειωθήκαμε με τη χρήση τεχνικών φωτισμού, τριπόδων και καμερών. Ασχοληθήκαμε ακόμη με την επεξεργασία ήχου και δημιουργήσαμε ένα μονοσέλιδο κόμικ. Η εμπειρία από τα μαθήματα ήταν εξαιρετικά ωφέλιμη και ο πάροχος του μαθήματος υπήρξε φιλικός, υποστηρικτικός και κατατοπιστικός, προσφέροντας όσα προέβλεπε η περιγραφή της δραστηριότητας κατάρτισης.
