TEAM Lab hosted a webinar on Digital storytelling. This training was presented by Jena Sussex (Research Assistant) and Dr. Carol Koprowski (Assistant Professor of Preventive Medicine at USC's Institute for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Research).
Digital storytelling is a combination of the ancient art of storytelling and the modern use of digital media. Digital stories allow users to share their message in the powerful form of a narrative, making it more memorable, forceful, and resonating with their audience. By combining narrative storytelling, photos, movies, and music, creators can disseminate information in one of the most innovative and effective methods of communication-the digital story. Learn what a digital story is, how to get your organization started on creating digital stories, the technology involved, and find out who is already using digital stories successfully in the fields of health care, advertising, communication, non-profit and advocacy groups. This low budget information dissemination tool has the potential to change the way we share information and give meaning to the messages we send. Digital stories are being used by doctors, patients, teachers, students, parents, children, businesses and artists alike, to share information in the compact and memorable format of a story.
Digital Storytelling Examples
Photovoice 2 was presented by Nora Manzanilla, Director of the TARGET Project, in the Office of the Los Angeles City Attorney, Tobacco Enforcement Program. She presented the training in the form of a case study about the TARGET photovoice project. She gave a brief overview of the planning, and then shared their methods for data collection, management, data analysis and dissemination. This training discussed the planned versus the execution of photovoice, as well as lessons learned and strategies, tools and techniques that may be helpful.
This was a follow up to the Photovoice Part 1 webinar that was launched last year (May 12, 2011) and is always available for viewing on TEAM Lab’s website, in the Archived Webinars page.
