Last Saturday, the May 2011 narratED Digital Storytelling Training Workshop concluded with the screening of fantastic digital stories.
The diversity of these stories will astound you. Lica Marhao, a Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC) mathematics instructor, created a teaching story entitled “Pi: The Number That Fascinates Humanity.”
Cindy Burkhalter from Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas, created a lovely tribute to four generations of quilting women in her family. Also from Angelo State University, Lynette Crockett produced a moving story in honor of her beautiful, hard-working mother who raised six children alone after her husband’s death.
Two other participants from CVCC produced stories to promote their areas on campus. Career Counselor Teresa Ray produced a story entitled “Writing Your Story . . . Living Your Dream . . . .” Job Placement Representative Jean Lane created a story for her program called “Off to the Races.”
Developmental English instructor Krysten Buchanan produced a moving story about the women of her family entitled “Ladies of Grace.” Darlene Hudson, who works in the CVCC Basic Skills Program, created a digital story to honor her youngest son and to chronicle important family history. And, Jerry Sain, CVCC Writing Center Coordinator, secured permission from author Carol Edelstein to transform one of her pieces of flash fiction into a digital story. These are all top-notch stories!
Prepare to be delighted and entertained!
