Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

A Digital Storytelling is a way of organising information, conveying emotions, and building community and a serie of still images or short videos that are combined with a narrated soundtrack to tell a story” (Bull & Kadjer,2004).

 

Although mobile technology is not yet widely used in schools, and in some cases even prohibited by internal regulations, the truth is that this technology, besides being a hallmark of contemporary life, is a powerful tool that challenges teachers and students to innovate in teaching learning practices. This course intends to contribute to the understanding of this phenomenon and use their potential for developing some Digital Storytelling (Sturm, 2007).

 

The course provides knowledge about this new pedagogical innovation, the advantages and disadvantages, but also with a very practical use of video tools in classroom.
