Introduction to Digital Storytelling Communities: How to Engage the Public
An Infopeople Webinar
"This webinar highlights a California digital storytelling program and will focus on California libraries. Libraries in other states may find relevant content, but the focus will be on California."
This is the second of two webinars that explore the digital storytelling program supported by the California State Library.
From the announcement of the first webinar: "Everyone has a story to tell, be it to pass on pieces of history, to record significant events, as part of a healing process, or for other reasons. Our need to tell and record these stories led to the launch of the digital storytelling movement by Dana Atchley in 1993. Libraries currently preserve the memories and histories of the communities they serve in variety of formats. Many libraries are now recording those memories and history in the form of digital stories. In 2007 the California State Library began providing grant funds to libraries to implement a local digital storytelling program. Learn what many of those libraries learned while implementing their local programs."
In this second webinar in the Digital Storytelling Series you'll discover -
- How to create a project theme
- How digital stories can be used in various settings
- How to identify partners
- How to identify funders
- How to identify storytellers
- The benefits of a community presentation
- Next steps
By the end of this webinar you'll have the basic knowledge needed to move forward in preserving the memories and history of your community through implementation of a digital storytelling program.
This webinar will be of interest to public library staff planning or currently involved with digitization and local history.
