Throughout March and April 2022, several Digital Storytelling workshops were conducted online with English teachers from all over Styria, Austria. The workshops were part of a larger continued education program for teachers organized by the University College of Teacher Education Styria.
Digital storytelling is a flexible teaching tool that allows students to create personal multimedial stories and supports the development of language, digital, intercultural and various other competences. Teachers were introduced to digital storytelling and everyone was invited to create their first personal digital story. Several of these stories have been embedded above.
