Interesante video dónde se explora el uso de la narración como una herramienta para la educación y la divulgación. Transcribo el correo electrónico que recibí para que se comparta el mismo.
If this short film clip gets you as excited about exploring the use of storytelling as a tool for education and outreach as it does me, then I invite you to do three things:
- Familiarize yourself with the work of The Virtual Worlds Story Project (TVWSP): http://www.tvwsp.com/premiere.html. This visionary organization, founded by Jena Ball and Marty Keltz (yes the same Marty Keltz responsible for The Magic School Bus, Goosebumps, and The Indian in the Cupboard), is the developer and driving force behind the use of story quests to educate, engage, and create community.
- Make plans to attend the film premiere and quest on Thursday, October 1, 2009 at noon Second Life time (PST). Entitled, “Stories Without Borders: The life and times of Uncle D,” the event documents how immersive and interactive storytelling can change lives. You can do this by: attending the live event in Second Life (email Jena at Jenaia@TVWSP.com for details), you will not want to miss the opportunity to experience this powerful storytelling tool firsthand.
