Digital Storytelling Learning Excursions for your museum

screenshot476A one-day workshop about creating Digital Storytelling excursions for you museums.  Digital Storytelling Learning engages students with the stories and artefacts in your museum through the creative challenge of creating a short 3-5 minute movie while at your museum.  These excursions enable school students to come to your museum, armed with their iPads and create digital stories which they showcase at the end of the day.

These programs not only provide great learning opportunities, but are a fun activity for museum workers, students and teachers – everyone involved.  It’s great to see how creative the students can be, and to understand their perceptions of the museum.  Watching their digital stories you can see these things first hand..  And if students are encouraged to record interviews with people working at the museum, the person interaction further extends the learning.

The workshop being offered, lets your museum workers experience the process in their own environment, and starts from the beginning to tailor a program for your museum.
