TEAM Lab hosted a webinar on Digital storytelling. This training was presented by Dr. Carol Koprowski, (Assistant Professor of Preventive Medicine at USC’s Institute for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Research), and Jena Sussex (Research Assistant).
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.
