Digital Advocacy Storytelling 



Word cloud created at Wordle.net

Created at Tagxedo.com


In LS5633: Art of Storytelling, Literacy Matters cohort students developed digital advocacy stories based on a core value they hold in children's and family literacy.


From the course syllabus: "This is an individual project. In your original digital advocacy story, you will reflect your library values and promote a particular aspect of your library program. You will develop a storyboard using a Web 2.0 tool, develop a script, select an appropriate presentation tool or software, and make your story freely available on the Web. You will use social networking and participatory culture tools to seek feedback from a target audience and revise your final story presentation. You will use a Web 2.0 tool to develop a reflection on this assignment process and final product."


ALSC Competency:

VII. Advocacy, Public Relations, and Networking Skills
1. Utilizes effective public relations techniques and media to promote an awareness of and support for meeting children's library and information needs through all media.


The complete Digital Storytelling assignment sheet is found on Dr. Judi Moreillon's LS5633 course wiki.
