This workshop will prepare instructors to teach with the Immigrant Stories digital storytelling project and to train their students to use the project’s story-making website.
Immigrant Stories is a groundbreaking storytelling and archiving project run by the Immigration History Research Center (IHRC).
Immigrant Stories helps people tell, share, and preserve personal or family stories about immigration by creating digital stories: 3-5 minute videos made from a combination of images, text, and audio. Immigrant Stories uses a free website that guides students through the progress of making an original video from start to finish, from scripting writing through video editing. Participants are invited to share their stories with the project for preservation in the IHRC Archives. Learn more about Immigrant Stories.
