In this module, we take a look at learning through the production of digital narratives, exploring how new media tools, network connectivity, and mobile access enable people to navigate, produce and share dynamic narratives and research artifacts with a global audience.
In Learning through Digital Storytelling, we’ll explore how production pedagogies might enable learners to deeply engage multiliteracy competences through the making of authentic cultural products, art and knowledge.
We’ll explore video production and cellphilms, student-produced media/arts magazines, and multimodal graphic texts, including plurilingual talking books, serious comics, and tools for creative telling interactive, nonlinear stories. We’ll invite you to learn about – and critically reflect upon – digital storytelling by doing it.
