Feedback on DST

New approaches to curriculum implementation were shown. The course offered interesting practical work including modern methodology and modern learning theory that can be applied in schools. Sessions were mostly practical.

The course gave the possibility to learn more about the available tools that can be used in the classroom and which can enhance lessons’ quality, to gain experience and to share ideas on how to use technical tools in a daily work, to discuss different approaches and innovative projects in digital story building, as they can help students of any age to integrate into European society, choose the best tools for new technologies that are suitable for each pupil’s skill level.

The acquired knowledge becomes especially important in creating oral and written communication skills. Digital stories are one of the technological approaches that can have a positive impact on students. Digital skills are precisely those that allow teachers to increase the productivity of a lesson, they attract the attention of students.

We felt that the creative and writing part of the course was excellent and really easy to comprehend. The visual examples were great and very helpful.

My name is Aurora Zamfir and I am from Romania.

I chose to follow the course “Digital Storytelling made easy as 1-2-3” because I am a Mother Tongue teacher and I also am interested in increasing my digital skills, in order to raise the attractiveness of my lessons. I wanted to find a way to combine these two subjects and this is what I found in Malta, thanks to the hosting organization, Across Limits / Training Malta, and thanks to our great trainer, Ildikó Kudlik.

I learn a lot during the 5 training days! I found about the method of Storytelling and it will be very helpful in my future professional activity. But beside the rules and the mandatory elements of the method itself, I found here beautiful people! My 13 colleagues from Portugal, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Spain and Germany were so open minded and hearted people! Ildiko, the Hungarian trainer, was so good and determined, and she gave all her best!
Now, when the course is finished, I can say that it was not just a simple structured course!

Digital Storytelling is an experience that should switch to more adults, not just to children and young people; usually the young people are more open, more honest than the adults, and they have more courage in expressing feelings.

I found that everyone has at least one story to tell, and this method gives them the courage necessary to make it known, to share it. Not even one story is wrong, as long as it reflects personal experiences and causes good changes. To judge, to evaluate a life story just through your own principles and beliefs it is definitively a bad and a destructive thing!

Digital Storytelling it is not just a method to develop creativity! DST means also sounding the subconscious depths of the soul, of those drawers and pantry that often we don’t have enough courage to open-up and to air them. So DST means personal development too. To have the courage to tell and share your story is a challenge, and the consequences are extraordinary, both for the creator and for the audience!

I found that “A story that comes from the soul cannot be denied!”

Thank you! 🙂
