Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling

Course summary

Erasmus+ KA1

480€

Digital Storytelling is a way of organising information, conveying emotions, and building community and a series of still images or short videos 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 Digital Storytelling.

Objectives: This course provides knowledge about this new pedagogical innovation, its advantages and disadvantages, as well as a very practical use of video tools to be implemented in the classroom.
