From pitching ideas in the office to posting holiday snaps to your favourite social places, we use stories in every area of our lives. To entertain, explain, educate and engage. We are made of stories.
Thanks to the Open University, this year I am able to offer a series of free workshops. These will be hosted by the OU in a number of cities across the UK. Think of this as a chance to sharpen your story-making skills for home, for fun or for professional use. We will be using today’s tools and platforms for documenting and sharing, connecting and curating.
Bring your mobile device or tablet and join us on a storymaking walk where you’ll get the chance to make and share a story of your own. We’ll show you how to:
· Use a range of storymaking tools and apps
· Take better photos with your mobile device
· Record and share audio
· Capture and share video
· Geotag your location
· Integrate multiple elements into your story
· Use tags to make your story visible
· Curate and Share your content online.
The first event took place in Cambridge city centre on Friday the 18th January. Please Storymaking.net for more info.
