Digital stories are first-person narratives and multimedia presentations that combine digitized still images, video clips, voiceover narration and music. Creators of digital stories make sense of the world through inquiry, self-reflection and perspective-taking. In this workshop, participants will learn about global migration patterns of people in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and South America as well as develop technical skills necessary to create a digital story. The purpose of this workshop is to give educators skills necessary for them to help students in their classroom tell stories of migration and to help students achieve the following global competencies as defined by the US Department of Education:
Educators should come to the institute with a 300-500 word narrative about their own personal or family history immigrant experience OR a narrative about their experience working with people in immigrant or refugee communities.
