Intergenerational Collaboration Through Digital Storytelling

Wednesday, August 15 | 4:30PM–6:15PM | Room 1B29
Session Type: Professional Development

Used in intergenerational settings, digital storytelling presents a rich opportunity for collaboration, personal reflection, and the sharing of experiences and memories. Through a unique partnership between UMBC and the Retirement Living Television Network, students are working with senior citizens to produce short digital movies for personal sharing and broadcast. This presentation will discuss the project and the challenges of delivering a broadcast product while maintaining focus on the pedagogical values of the digital storytelling process.
