DIGITAL STORYTELLING

 

The Digital Storytelling Lab at Columbia University will design stories for the 21st Century. We build on a diverse range of creative and research practices originating in fields from the arts, humanities and technology. But we never lose sight of the power of a good story. Technology, as a creative partner, has always shaped the ways in which stories are found and told. In the 21st Century, for example, the mass democratization of creative tools -- code, data and algorithms -- have changed the relationship between creator and audience. The Digital Storytelling Lab, therefore, is a place of speculation, of creativity, and of collaboration between students and faculty from across Columbia University. New stories are told here in new and unexpected ways.

 

T-Story – Storytelling Applied to Training

is a project within the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the EC.

T-Story promotes a wider use of the Storytelling and Digital Storytelling in education and training at all levels (formal, non-formal and informal) throughout Europe through a digital course for educators, teachers and trainers. T-Story fosters teachers/educators/trainers knowledge and skills development by using digital storytelling techniques - “learn storytelling through storytelling”.

The target groups have the opportunity to learn and train how to implement the techniques and how to engage their students/trainees taking advantage of the digital potential.
