Modules 1-4 are focused on the Digital Storytelling process as a way to express diversity and to promote inclusion in activities. You will acquire skills in digital storytelling, see examples of stories other students have shared and create your own story on the themes of INCLUSION, WELLBEING AND DIVERSITY. Module 1 looks at the first step in the Digital Storytelling process: Story Circle
The activities in the module are designed to:
Students write down or say three things about themselves – one of them is a lie. The other students have to guess which one is the lie.
It is a simple and creative tool through which people can share their experience and stories with little or no experience. It is a useful tool for promoting inclusivity in classrooms.
It mainly uses voiceover and still images to create a short (1-2 minutes) and educational story. A digital story is made in 5 steps: Story Circle, Script Writing, Storyboarding, Editing, Feedback.
A story circle is a safe place to share your story. The SOLIS project is all about inclusion, wellbeing and diversity. Ideas to help express a story personal to you:
What do those terms, inclusion, wellbeing, diversity, mean to you?
Is there an example in your life you can think of where you have felt included, or excluded, where you have felt content, or stressed, where you have felt different to the people around you?
What traditions and aspects from your culture (where different or not from your peers) that are important to you and why?
