Summary: Every community has a memory of itself.
A living memory, an awareness of a collective identity woven of a thousand stories.

DIGITAL STORYTELLING WORKSHOP
March 18-20, 2008
The Digital Storytelling Workshop
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 narrative and facilitative teaching methods. Many of the stories
made in our workshops are directly connected to the images collected in life's journey.
But our primary concern is encouraging thoughtful and emotionally direct writing.
The goal of the workshop is to design and produce a 3-5 minute digital story. In the
workshop we provide an overview to the story process and take participants through
group story development. Students then craft and record first-person narratives, collect
still images and music with which to illustrate their pieces, and are guided through
computer tutorials which enable them, with teacher support, to edit their own stories.
