What is Tell Your Story?
Tell Your Story aims at exploring the use of digital storytelling and story mapping in education to combat early school leaving. It also aims to motivate early school leavers to re-enter lifelong learning, thus preventing young people at risk from prematurely dropping out of school or vocational education.
Well-told stories are very powerful artefacts. Digital stories are often presented in compelling, interactive and emotionally engaging formats.
Digital storytelling is therefore a suitable and effective means for young people to communicate their experiences. Storytelling is defined as a short form of digital media production, which allows people to share particular aspects of their lives. “Media” may include full-motion videos with sound, animation, stills, audio, etc., which individuals can use to tell a story or present an idea.
