  • 6. What is Storytelling? The basics: Storytelling is the conveying of events in words, and images, often by improvisation or embellishment. Stories or narratives have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation, and instilling moral values. Crucial elements of stories and storytelling include plot, characters, and narrative point of view. Storytelling predates writing, with the earliest forms of storytelling usually oral combined with gestures and expressions. Prepared with care for CAYAD Re-Design Programme Kaan Hiini & Jade Tang
  • 7. What is Digital Storytelling? The basics: Digital storytelling at its most basic core is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. The term “digital storytelling” can also cover a range of digital narratives (web-based* stories, interactive stories, hypertexts, and narrative computer games); It is sometimes used to refer to film-making in general, and as of late, it has been used to describe advertising and promotion efforts by commercial and non-profit enterprises. One can define digital storytelling as the process by which diverse peoples share their life story and creative imaginings with others. This newer form of storytelling emerged with the advent of accessible media production techniques, hardware and software, including but not limited to digital cameras, digital voice recorders, iMovie, Windows Movie Maker and Final Cut Express. These new technologies allow individuals to share their stories over the Internet on YouTube, Vimeo, compact discs, podcasts, and other electronic distribution systems. *http://jessandruss.us/ Prepared with care for CAYAD Re-Design Programme Kaan Hiini & Jade Tang
  • 8. Why use Digital Storytelling? In public health, healthcare, social services, and international development Digital storytelling is being used to raise awareness of the “human” factor in healthcare. 1) The Patient Voices programme is the product of Pip Hardy and Tony Sumner. Commissioned in 2003, by the Royal College of Nursing in the U.K. their project provides a means for people (patients, families or healthcare workers) to tell their stories which might affect clinicians, managers and decision-makers in the healthcare arena. These digital stories are available at The Patient Voices. 2) The development of the Silence Speaks project[26] in 1999 under the direction of Amy Hill (who joined the Center for Digital Storytelling in 2005) led to the expansion of digital storytelling in public health.

  • 10. The 7 Elements of Digital Storytelling 1. Point of View: What is the main point of the story and what is the perspective of the author? 2. A Dramatic Question: A key question that keeps the viewer’s attention and will be answered by the end of the story. 3. Emotional Content: Serious issues that come alive in a personal and powerful way and connects the audience to the story. 4. The Gift of Your Voice: A way to personalize the story to help the audience understand the context. 5. The Power of the Soundtrack: Music or other sounds that support and embellish the story. 6. Economy: Using just enough content to tell the story without overloading the viewer 7. Pacing: The rhythm of the story and how slowly or quickly it progresses. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1f-_FXgJZM Prepared with care for CAYAD Re-Design Programme Kaan Hiini & Jade Tang
