MiTE Conference P.M. Session for Friday, January 13, 2017

“Mobile & Global Digital Storytelling–Can You Tell A Story in six seconds? Bring your phone and learn how”

Can you tell a story in 6 seconds using just your mobile phone? Mobile tech is app-smashing its way into digital storytelling with international and intergenerational participants. Mobile digital storytelling is an innovative outreach beyond academic programs silos. Mobile digital storytelling for intergenerational studies innovates and leverages technology to connect students with life events beyond the campus, merging interdisciplinary academic concepts, combating intergenerational stereotypes, and changing perceptions.
This presentation, driven by QR-coded resources and international co-participation, explains how mobile technology, apps, and student enthusiasm converge to increase awareness of global issues, confront stereotypes, spark conversations, and build advocacy dialogues for social justice all through an interdisciplinary learning experience.References:
