Every community has a memory of itself. A living memory, an awareness of a collective identity woven of a thousand stories.
LEARN NC and the Center for Digital Storytelling are co-hosting a Digital Storytelling Workshop from October 10-12, 2013 at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. This immersive workshop will focus on the strategies and technologies of creating a digital narrative with a special emphasis on classroom application.
Based in Berkeley, California, the Center for Digital Storytelling is a non-profit training, project development, and research organization dedicated to assisting people in using digital media to tell meaningful stories from their lives. Many individuals and communities have used the term “digital storytelling” to describe a wide variety of new media production practices. What best describes our approach is its emphasis on personal voice and facilitative teaching methods. Our focus is on developing large-scale projects for community, educational, and business institutions through the methods and principles of the Digital Storytelling Workshop.
The workshop requires that participants have basic word processing skills, Internet research skills, the ability to send email with attachments, and rudimentary knowledge of a computer directory system.
Continuing Education Credits are available through Dominican University of California (two CEUs) or University of Colorado.
The deadline for registration is September 30, 2013. For more information and to register, please visit the Center for Digital Storytelling workshop website. For questions, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
