A public workshop brought to you by KCDigiKids Coalition

Storytelling is enjoying a resurgence of popularity in the modern age as teachers and non-profit program leaders harness it as a powerful teaching and learning tool. New Media Narrative and Digital Storytelling—Using Digital Technology to Tell Your Story will help you learn how to plan and create digital stories and other new media narrative using common, inexpensive hardware and software. Other topics covered will include applying digital storytelling to classrooms and organizational needs, using new media in content areas and assessment, and how to use story to promote an organization’s message. This workshop shows you how to create a story that works, regardless of whether you are a traditional or digital storyteller; regardless of whether you are in business, education, art or simply enjoy telling stories for friends and family.

You will learn how to plan, write, tell stories and develop the aspects of successful stories that are found in books, movies, public presentations and even advertisements, including flow, character, meaning, conflict resolution, audience engagement and transformation. You will leave with practical tools to use with others to help them tell their stories. The workshop can be applied to literacy and content learning for students, business presentations, public speaking and personal development and expression.
