On the Digital Storytelling section (http://dsi.kqed.org/index.php/inspirations) you can find out more about
* Annual Digital Storytelling Contest and Festival for high school students
* Featured Projects such as youth stories from South Africa created at the 5th World Summit on Media and Children.
* Digital Storytelling: Watch stories, explore narrative, investigate new technologies and check out resources that have to do with digital storytelling. Including Mobile Projects such as "'Scape the Hood", the first gps-enabled mobile media project:
"Scape the Hood was conceived and designed as a locative storytelling project for the Digital Storytelling Initiative at KQED for the opening of the 8th annual Digital Storytelling Festival. We convened a group of storytellers, artists, and technologists to envision what this project could be. It became a narrative archeology experiment, combining digital storytelling and emerging technology by overlaying a virtual landscape on the physical world. As originally designed, the audience walks the streets and listens to the neighbourhood stories, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells from both the physical and the virtual world."

Project-based learning with multimedia
SRI International's Center for Technology in Learning evaluated the Challenge 2000 Multimedia Project from 1995 to 2000. The evaluation examined three aspects of the Multimedia Project: its dissemination across various schools and districts, its impact on teaching practice, and its effects on student achievement. This page is designed to offer the evaluation findings to specific audiences: Technology Coordinators and Administrators, Teachers, Students and Parents, Business Partners, and Researchers. There are also Quick Links to the full evaluation reports, slide presentations, research and evaluation tools, and related research into education and technology.

Daisy and Drago
Daisy and Drago is an animation by 6-year old Turkish pupils under the guidance of two teachers from the Terakki Foundation Schools in Istanbul, Turkey, English teacher Miss. Özge Karaoğlu and animation teacher Mrs. Havva Kangal Erdoğan. Daisy and Drago aims to entertain young learners while they learn a foreign language (in this case English) and help them to build permanent learning in English. The pupils made drawings in their animation class, coloured them and by putting them behind each other, an animation was created. The pupils also dubbed the animation for a Turkish and an English version.
In a repetitive and funny story young children can learn to use the English phrases “I can – I can’t – Can you?” as the young girl Daisy invites her friend Drago to several of her favourite sports activities, but he can’t do them as he is a dragon and she is a human, but there is one thing that Drago can do...
By integrating Art and English lessons, pupils had the opportunity to learn and combine artistry and language skills during the production of this animation film and their audiovisual aids are now an important part of the resulting animation. They learned how to record their voices and sounds for the animation, but also to create and maintain teamwork and present their artwork to an audience.
This film has been used in English lessons as a teaching resource in English language teaching. The resulting animation is also part of lessons as Özge and Havva explain: “We have used this film in our kindergarten classes when we teach sports . Before we present the topic we show some snapshots of the video where they do different sports and we ask the kids to name them. We ask students about their favorite sports then we ask them which sports they can do. They look at the snapshots and decide what Daisy can do and what Drago can’t. After they watch the film, students role-play the story and discuss what Daisy and Drago can or can’t do. They also watch the film without the sound and then try to remember what the characters say in different scenes. Another related activity is preparing posters for the film and making puppets of the characters.” Follow-up stories were later created such as 'Daisy and Drago and the Magic Wand', ...
Daisy and Drago won the MEDEA Award for Creativity and Innovation 2009. You can watch a MEDEA Showcase about the project here: http://www.medea-awards.com/daisy-and-drago, and be sure to watch the "making of video" of Daisy and Drago’s narration: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1352486947893285486#
The guide includes advice on how to manage teaching and learning film in early years settings, classrooms and across the school, a model for learning progression, and an extensive list of further resources and resource providers.

Participatory Video A Practical Approach to Using Video Creatively in Group Development Work
"Video can be a powerful tool for stimulating self-expression and interaction in group development work. Used in a participatory way, video encourages clients to examine the world around them, raising awareness of their situation and helping them to become more actively involved in the decisions which affect their lives. Based on an innovative approach researched over twelve years, Participatory Video offers a comprehensive guide to using video with groups.
The book includes over 60 step-by-step exercises, explaining clearly the procedure to follow, time needed and value of each activity. It provides basic information about video equipment and how to operate it, techniques for teaching skills to group members and advice on planning a series of workshops and longer-term video projects. Jackie Shaw and Clive Robertson place the use of video within a coherent theoretical framework and show how to maximise its effectiveness in groups with a range of different needs.
Participatory Video will be of particular interest to group leaders looking for new ways to enhance and amplify the group development process. It is aimed at a wide range of professionals, including social workers, youth and community workers, teachers, development educationalists, extension workers, therapists, community artists and video trainers."
