Digital Storytelling

The Digital Storytelling Program offers Year 6 – Year 12 students the opportunity to work with and create their own digital story. Digital storytelling is a powerful means for enabling communication and social participation, and can also be used to introduce students to the genre of documentaries.

 

What is a Digital Story?

A digital story usually:

  • Combines:
    • 15-30 still images
    • recorded script of 100-250 words
  • Creates: an original personal digital story in the form of a 2-3 minute digital video.

This form of co-creative media takes advantage of newly accessible technologies but is based in the ancient and universal tradition of storytelling. This program offers students the ability and the creative means to write and share their own stories.

Students will develop:

  • creativity
  • storytelling skills
  • technological skills
  • self-confidence

And at the same time gain empowerment and exposure to the Creative Industries.
