Digital Stories" aims to combine the tradition of storytelling with
contemporary technical tools, raising the key competences on EU-enlargement
topics and on European common values, teaching digital storytelling
competences to 12 to 18 year old students and teachers.
The students will create their own EU digital stories, present materials
together in the mobilities, in this way the intercultural dialogue among
EU members and the raise of civic keys will be promoted. They will work on
different subjects using digital storytelling which will bring new benefits for
skills improvement: English skills and ITC skills.
A Comenius team will be formed and different
workshops for the target group and teachers about “digital storytelling” and movie
editing software will be organized. Both students and teachers will learn to
organize plot of stories with pictures, using first person narratives, voice
recording, editing the sound according to sequence of the event and adding
subtitles to the stories in English.
Two useful websites will be used as ICT tools; http://www.pixton.com/ to
organize the plot of their digital stories and http://rubistar.4teachers.org to
evaluate the digital stories.
The material of narrative videos will be used by a group of students to create the
theatre performance "Call for Europe".
teachers have important tasks, as they will plan activities focused on efficient use of ITC tools and motivate the
pupils to create short first person narratives by using digital storytelling
