Center for Digital Storytelling - listen deeply, tell stories
"The Center for Digital Storytelling is a California-based non-profit 501(c)3 arts organization rooted in the art of personal storytelling. We assist people of all ages in using the tools of digital media to craft, record, share, and value the stories of individuals and communities, in ways that improve all our lives.
Many individuals and communities have used the term "digital storytelling" to describe a wide variety of new media production practices. What best describes our approach is its emphasis on personal voice and facilitative teaching methods. Many of the stories made in our workshops are directly connected to the images collected in life's journey. But our primary concern is encouraging thoughtful and emotionally direct writing."
MICROTUBE is a website where students can submit short video clips that explain microeconomic concepts, effects, or theorems.
The basic idea underlying the MICROTUBE project is very simple: Students of economics produce video clips for students of economics. If these clips are worthwhile to watch, all the better. But how to implement such an idea? After some initial discussions with experts from the media services at the University of Zurich, it was agreed that it would be advisable to invest the available time in a small number of clips (rather than having too many). So a plan was made. A script was written, a casting organized, and locations were selected. Two camera teams worked in parallel over an extremely dense offsite weekend. And then, following weeks of cutting and fine-tuning, we ultimately arrived at the clips that are shown on this website. The MICROTUBE team hopes these clips will be (or have been) enjoyable for you!
Acknowledgement. This e-learning project was made possible by the generous support of the Initiate Interactive Learning (IIL) at the University of Zurich during the years 2007 and 2008. The website was designed and realized by Michael Hohl. The MICROTUBE project is an original idea of Christian Ewerhart.
