I think digital storytelling is a powerful medium for connecting with learners, potential audiences, and employees. I’m also a big fan of TechSoup, which supports non-profits in a variety of ways, but is an excellent source of information for all of us. This posts contains two ways to learn more about digital storytelling; thanks to Tech Soup for both.
1. “Storytelling has gone digital. Throughout January, join TechSoup’s Digital Storytelling Event. Participate in webinars, online events, and discussions with digital media experts, and learn how to tell your organization’s story through video and photos. Then, create a digital story showcasing your organization’s work and submit it for a chance to win prizes, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Flip Video Slide HD, and Optoma Pico Projector. No production or storytelling experience is necessary — they teach you how.”
2. Want to just browse through some examples and see how others used digital storytelling to inspire, engage, and educate others? Check out the winning entries from their previous Challenge. If they can do it, you can do it, too.
