The webinars are conducted from 10:00am 11:00am Pacific Standard Time, which is 1pm – 2pm Eastern Standard Time

Here’s the description from their website:

“Finding a story to share is a journey, often not an easy one. Yet sharing experiences about our lives can be immensely rewarding. This free webinar is the first step of your digital storytelling journey and provides a gateway to further explorations of image, sound, and digital media.”

The webinar includes:

  • An introduction to digital storytelling, both as a workshop process and media arts practice
  • An overview of StoryCenter’s original digital storytelling methodology
  • A discussion of how digital storytelling is being used by educators, public health practitioners, and social justice advocates

According to Story Center these webinars are for “anyone interested in taking our digital storytelling workshops or developing a partnership with us – young and old, technically savvy or digital novice. We all have stories to tell.”

The webinars are limited to 100 people so register in advance!
