  • You are going to help a group of digital natives tell their stewardship stories/form their stewardship identities in the digital world. Where are you with this project? What are you excited about, what concerns do you have? (go around the room)Storytelling is a huge subject – there are an infinite number of ways to tell a story! My goal for today is to narrow the possibilities, provide some concrete options/formats, and create a structure for ongoing support. Sound good?
  • What are stories? Words, images and sounds shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation, and to instill moral values.What are the critical elements of a story? Character, plot, and narrative point of view.How have formats developed over time? Formats developed from oral (including music and gesture), to incorporating visual, written, filmic, and now interactive elements. Over time, formats have had the potential to reach progressively larger audiences.What does telling a story do for the teller? Why do you tell stories? To express/define yourself, to persuade others, to build community, to reflect.
  • Finding the experience; telling the story; creating the piece; publishing the work; geotagging to place.
  • Use music, images, words, pacing to bring the story to life.One form: I was this person, then this happened, and because of that I am now this person. And let me tell you why it makes all the difference.Finding the experience; telling the story; creating the piece; publishing the work
