Digital Storytelling: Self and Other
This session will explore the role compassion, empathy, deep listening, creativity, and technology play in the classroom. Discussion will include how developing personal experiences into compelling narratives builds and strengthens connections within the classroom, within the student body, and within the larger community. We will show examples that dive into the worst and best of the human experience, helping students come to know themselves so that they might more meaningfully connect to others.
