iPad digital storytelling workshop

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 an iPad digital storytelling workshop from March 27-29, 2014 at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. This immersive workshop will focus on the strategies and technologies of creating a digital narrative with a special emphasis on classroom application.

This hands-on workshop supports participants as they create powerful first-person narratives by harnessing the audio and visual digital capabilities of the iPad. The workshop is an exciting introduction into the experience of writing for multimedia and developing visual narratives that enhance the communication value of the story. The workshop process includes an introduction to the “Seven Steps of Digital Storytelling,” participation in a story circle, script writing and recording, and using the photo and video editing features of the iPad to integrate images and audio. Digital stories are completed during the workshop. As they finish their digital stories, participants move into the second component of the workshop, in which we explore implementation issues. Strategies for managing the creation of digital stories in K-12 classrooms are presented and discussed.

Each participant receives a digital packet of classroom resources for digital storytelling projects, including a software guide and a sample assessment rubric. iPads will also be available for use. Continuing Education Credits are available through LEARN NC.

Deadline for registration is March 14, 2014. You can also find more information here:
