Interested in filmmaking or journalism?
High school teachers and students are invited to a one-day workshop on digital storytelling.
Bringing together skills in writing, storyboarding, photography, audio, video, editing and producing, this workshop will walk you through the process of coming up with story ideas, developing the narrative, capturing the story in images and sound, then editing and producing it as a short-form digital story.
High school teachers and students will work together in small groups to learn what equipment and software you need and what steps are involved in digital storytelling.
Half of the day will be spent learning about digital storytelling from a journalism perspective and half of the day will focus on digital storytelling from a filmmaking perspective. Both sessions will be hands-on.
You’ll leave with an understanding of how to better plan, produce, and evaluate media assignments more effectively. What you learn can easily translate to high school journalism and filmmaking activities such as news broadcasts, digital yearbooks, and film projects.
Lunch will feature a presentation from Brian Strauss, a multimedia expert from Penn State's World Campus who used to work at National Geographic Magazine. He will share stories about his professional experiences with digital storytelling in two very different career tracks.
