Storymaking with a Mobile Device
What is it? 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. Think of this workshop as a chance to sharpen your story-making skills for home, for fun or for professional use. I train using today’s tools and platforms for documenting, sharing, connecting and curating. With mobile device or tablet we begin in the classroom and then venture outside. During a storymaking walk participants get the chance to make and share a story of their own. Course highlights include:
- Use a range of storymaking tools and apps
- Take better photos with your mobile device
- Record and share audio
- Capture and share video
- Interview techniques
- Geotag your location
- Integrate multiple elements into your story
- Use tags to make your story visible
- Curate and share your content online.
Where is it? All that’s needed is a room with a projector. Spare power sockets would be handy for charging devices. If you’d like to know more about my Storymaking Workshop please email me.
