Digital Games And Storytelling

Course Description

Every single human being has a one-of-a-kind personal history that is formed by their individual experiences, ideas, and emotions. The act of telling one’s experiences to other people may be a transformative and inspirational experience for both the listeners and the narrators of those experiences. Sharing one’s experiences with others can be a powerful tool.

The art of conveying stories through the use of various digital tools and technologies is known as digital storytelling. In addition to the text and an actual tale to tell, the fundamental components of digital storytelling include video footage, images, pictures, or illustrations; background music and other sounds or audio recordings; and any combination of these elements. The art of digital storytelling consists of combining the spoken or written story that we select or develop on our own with various kinds of artistic expression in order to make a visually captivating story. In order for a digital tale to be captivating and intriguing for the viewer, the story needs to be innovative. The more creative the story is, the more chance it has of capturing the attention of the viewer.

Digital games and storytelling offer new opportunities for educators to engage students in the classroom and support learning in a variety of subjects. Games can be used as a tool for teaching and learning, and interactive narratives can be used to create engaging and immersive learning experiences. The use of digital games in education has been shown to increase student motivation, engagement, and problem-solving skills. Storytelling, in particular, is a powerful tool for teaching, as it allows for the creation of rich and meaningful learning experiences. This training course is designed to provide educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to use digital games and storytelling to engage students in the classroom.
