Digital stories are valuable in a variety of learning environments including in-person, online, hybrid and point of need support. A compelling story can engage students, so with this in mind, the session will be a fast-paced and interactive introduction to digital story creation. We’ll start with shared examples of digital storytelling objects created by a variety of authoring tools to get ideas flowing. Attendees will receive a worksheet featuring different library populations and topics that they can use to guide their digital storytelling narrative or be able to create a digital story based on an issue that needs to be solved at their library. The additional supplemental tools worksheet will provide examples of digital stories created with different content types, including games, memes, videos, and infographics. Attendees will move on to the collaborative idea-sharing phase and work together to brainstorm the digital story in order to receive feedback on content. This activity will conclude with attendees creating usable outlines/drafts of potential digital storytelling ideas that they could implement in their library. Attendees will gain experience using digital authoring tools as well as exploring visual representations of information which can be utilized for creating future eLearning objects at home institutions.
