Shelly -

Remember that this is not an ICT conference, so make sure to include lots of examples of global collaboration in your preso!



Hi Shelly,

(I think I follow you on Twitter, too...) I am really interested in this presentation, and will, time permitting, be tuning in for it. I'm particularly interested in what you would classify as 'digital storytelling' - that is, what makes it digital, and what makes it storytelling. I've seen lots of discussion about this, but the topic of digital storytelling is vast! Anyway, looking forward to hearing more.


Hi Keith!

Thanks for your message. I will be focusing on collaborative digital storytelling projects for global projects. I think there are various types of digital storytelling such as stop motion, animation, claymation, etc. I am going to focus on the process and how to actually organize a digital storytelling project.

Hi Shelly,

This sounds very interesting. I will certainly try to attend, timezones will be a challenge.

I like the idea of students writing their own stories and sharing them globally. It would make a really nice read, compare and contrast our global lives in a unit/ project.

Where does one place the globally shared stories of our students? Or is this one of the conundrums we as teachers need to solve as part of our global collaboration? Is it something this site can do?

If we have a place with our globally shared stories it becomes a resource for all to use in our lessons/ projects in global education / intercultural education.

The power of students realising that people in other countries have things in common with them (as well as things that are different) can be harnessed for better personal understanding and a step towards curbing racism.

Hence a site or keeping place for these created stories would be good.

Looking forward to the session in November!
