Digital Cre8or Day – Part 2
As a follow-up/refresher, Tony Hall, Kevin Davison and Jim Lenaghan organised a ‘Digital Cre8or Day’ for Tuesday April 7th in the AiPLE Room, School of Education at NUI Galway. The theme of the day was ‘Digital Storytelling’, and offered an opportunity to revisit the skills of the December session in developing a digital narrative using video, animation etc.Kevin gave an illuminating introduction, pointing to some international examples where the storytelling process has had a positive effect. Firstly, in New Zealand, within a project called Photovoice, it has been used to elicit stories of youth groups. Secondly, Kevin also discussed an example of the Canadian film, Atanarjuat, produced by a small community of now expert filmakers and actors in Inuktitut. These were just two of the numerous examples presented.
