Limited Capacity seats available

A language is more than the few hundred to thousand words needed for basic communication - it is a window into the rich life of the cultures that share it, and not least into the stories that they tell. But as anyone who has taken part in a storytelling circle can attest, storytelling is not just about listening - it is also about sharing. How do we bring this sharing into the digital domain, so that language learners can enrich their thinking and understanding through the objects they create? We will explore a cornucopia of approaches, ranging from stories told through simple posters all the way to interactive narrative explorations. Throughout, we will make sure to emphasize practical tools and processes - after all, a story that is too hard to tell is a story that is never told.
