As we bring the E-Shahrazad Project to life, Thousand and One Nights bring about a new beginning for the understanding and reproduction of the masterful wordsmith that is the Europeen culture. In order to find our roots and communicate with them through the current mentality and intellect and to find meaning in our existence, we have to go back to the point of origin. Right there, we will come across the oral lore of the Europeen culture and with our new understanding of the past, we will apply a whole new approach to the construction of the future. Each step being a port of call on our journey we will embark on with the E-Sharazad Project.
In this podcast series, we cover a wide range of important points about digital storytelling. While listening to our podcast series, you will witness digital storytelling is not just the process of creating something digital, but is more about making sure that people are listening to each other, learning from each other. Digital storytelling is when a group of people engage in a dialog for the production of something that is digitally made. In addition, you will see how digital storytelling as a teaching method is an important opportunity that is about transferable skills, it’s about being open and not being afraid of saying you don’t know because people are learning from each other. It is a different world where the creation of a safe space for everyone to share whatever they want to share is possible. It is about making sure that all the participants or the stories created and they represent what that particular individual feels that is something they want to share in that particular moment.
We would like to invite you to witness and know more about this inclusive world where you can be more participatory and to create space to explain yourselves, your feelings and your ideas.
