What’s it about
Digital media and storytelling is a fun and powerful way to communicate and co-create.
The benefits of learning digital media include improved digital literacy and communication skills, healthier and more resilient communities, and a culture enriched by sharing perspectives and experiences. Creating Rich Digital Media workshops are aimed at leaders, educators and carers who wish to develop and update their skills in creative media. Prior knowledge of digital media applications is not necessary. The program is suited to people who would like to:
- Develop their skills in creating rich story-based, digital multimedia presentations;
- Use co-creative media techniques to facilitate children’s participation in digital media projects; and
- Apply digital storytelling techniques in community development and engagement activities.
You will learn how to create your own digital media works and stories, working with widely available software, and have the opportunity to publish your works in formats that will allow you to share by email, to upload to social media such as Facebook and video sites such as YouTube.
** Participants, Please bring the digital device that you work on eg smart phone, iPad, laptop etc.
