    6. 6. Challenges
    7. 7. We want stories. We love stories. Stories keep us alive. Stories that come from a place of deep insight and with a knowing wink to their audience, and stories that tease us into examining our own feelings and beliefs, and stories that guide us on our own path. But most importantly, stories told as stories, that honor the simple idea that we want to relive what the author experienced in time and place. Joe Lambert, 2013

    12. 12. Student feedback If you’re reading something and you get to watch it , so you’re absorbing it, hearing it and you’re doing it especially because part of you were doing the whole thingy. So as you’re doing it, you’re learning from it and it was fun like most videos it was fun. So you kind of want to play the video over and over and you know… it was the fun part like apply what you learnt into the movie … Thembani: I feel like the video it’s kind of good way of learning like I will prefer the video like in anything. Interviewer: Why?

    25. 25. • Aim: establishing needs of various groups in communities in order to develop some form of action on this need • Important: critical self-consciousness on the part of the researchers as well as a concern with social justice • Characterized as process, not a one-off event which is interactive, uses visual methods, is aimed at action and reflection and is usually practiced in a group setting. • Good for students with diverse academic literacy skills • Examples: Community Mapping or River of Life Participatory Learning & Action Techniques
    26. 26. Community mapping - urban
    27. 27. Community map - rural
    28. 28. River of Life

    30. 30. • Social cohesion / social pedagogy • From vulnerability to pride, pedagogy of discomfort • Social justice education • Engagement with issues around diversity • Critical reflection • Student identity Benefits of digital storytelling
    31. 31. So yes, if you get exposed to another person’s culture, surely you will respect that culture eventually and you will learn about that person and you see that person with more respect and in a better light. Real stories Everybody has their own story to tell. So digital story allows you to tell your specific story and share it amongst everybody in your classroom.
