Everybody likes a good story / Mae pawb yn hoffi stori dda


Published on

Everybody likes a good story’ was produced at a workshop that was part of Participation Cymru’s All Wales Residential Network 2011, which took place on 9 and 10 June in Llandrindod Wells. The workshop aimed to gather practitioners’ experiences of engagement and to produce a digital story, which was made on free software and put together in a couple of hours for display at the start of the second day. This shows that you don’t need to spend lots of time and money to produce a digital story. For further information on Participation Cymru please go to participationcymru.org.uk.

Creuwyd ‘Mae pawb yn hoffi stori dda’ yng ngweithdy a oedd yn rhan o Rwydwaith Preswyl Cymru Gyfan 2011 Cyfranogaeth Cymru ar 9 a 10 Mehefin yn Llandrindod. Roedd y gweithdy yn anelu i gasglu profiadau ymarferwyr ac i greu’r stori digidol ar feddalwedd a oedd yn rhad ac am ddim mewn cwpl o oriau er mwyn ei ddangos ar ddechrau’r ail ddydd. Mae hyn yn dangos nad oes angen gwario llawer o amser ac arian i greu stori ddigidol. Ar gyfer gwybodaeth bellach ar Gyfranogaeth Cymru ewch i participationcymru.org.uk.
