Digital Storytelling Workshop – September 2, 2014
Posted on: August 20, 2014 /
Wow, do I have a story for you! That’s how it all starts – with a story. Whether it’s about your latest success, a new employee, a grant received, a project begun, or any other newsworthy message from your organization that you want and need to share. We tell those things in a story. In the past, we shared the story through the use of print media, advertising, networking get-togethers, and just telling friends and associates. Things have changed and are continuing to change.
So, how do we use the new tools available to spread our stories? That’s what this month’s NFN4Good/501Tech meeting is about. Digital Storytelling – the what, why, and how.
Join us at our new meeting location.
