Mosaic Film Experience is partnering with The Henry Ford’s inHub to present a series of digital storytelling workshops for educators.
Storytelling in the Classroom: Concept and Connect is a free, two-part series that will take place from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 19, and Saturday, Feb. 26, on Zoom.
“Students are digital natives, and storytelling can be a practical way to bridge classroom learning and real-world experiences,” said Skot Welch, founder of Mosaic Film Experience. “Storytelling is an in-demand communication skill for 21st-century careers across all disciplines and industries.”
Mosaic Film Experience education leads Mallory and Randy Strobl will facilitate both sessions. They’ll break down the digital storytelling process and help teachers leverage technology in the classroom.
“Reframing how mobile devices are used and diving into media literacy helps students evolve from content consumers to conscious content producers,” Mallory Strobl said. “When digital storytelling is implemented in the classroom, students not only learn that they have a powerful tool in their pockets, but they begin to embrace their unique experiences, stories and voices.”
