Digital Storytelling


Joe Lambert, Executive Director of the Center for Digital Storytelling, San Francisco
Will discuss the genesis of Digital Storytelling, showing how DS practices have evolved, and describe current activities at the Center for Digital Storytelling.

Heather Pleasants, Assistant Professor, University of Alabama
Will present research on how DS relates to issues of identity, and how DS has been used to support language and literacy development in community contexts.

Mark Evan Nelson, Assistant Professor, National Institute of Education, Singapore
Will offer an international perspective, analyzing the multimedia creation processes of a group of Japanese undergraduate EFL students. He suggests that new-media multimodal authorship may engender conventionalized and iconic forms of representation and self-presentation over more inventive and idiosyncratic forms.
