I believe that everyone has an interesting story to tell. What about you?
In my workshops, I help people create digital stories in a group of 5–10 people. We start with a fact, an anecdote or piece of knowledge that we’d like to share, then narrate it in a few minutes utilizing images from our own creations or from other sources, while recording the creator’s voice.
The goal is to condense it into a two– to five–minute “mini–film” about a slice of our lives. It is not necessary to be knowledgeable about new technologies, but rather to be interested in learning more about them.
I will guide you through the process of digitizing your own images, downloading new images from the internet, recording your voice, editing videos and audios with an online timeline editing program, and uploading them online. By the end of the workshop, you will have created a digital story that you can share with the world. So why not start today? Let me help you tell your story!
As a seasoned digital storytelling facilitator, I bring a wealth of experience in filmmaking, editing, and writing to the table. I honed my skills by participating in seminars offered by the Center for Digital Storytelling in California, starting in 2010 at UMBC’s New Media Studio. This background allows me to effectively craft compelling stories using digital media. This was my first digital story is my introduction, providing a glimpse into my background:
To illustrate how it works, the videos below are based on some of the workshops I’ve helped lead as a facilitator:

DST IN SECONDARY ENGLISH CLASSROOM
As a Master’s student in Teacher Training, I aimed to become a Secondary Education Teacher at the Universitat de Barcelona, Spain. Despite the limited media literacy offerings in Spanish universities, I focused my studies on English Language Teaching and integrated my expertise in media as much as possible. This approach allowed me to conduct research on the connection between language learning and media literacy and effectively implement digital storytelling in the classroom to enhance English language learning.
My final project and internship at Insitut Pedralbes in Barcelona were centered around using digital storytelling as a tool for language learning, offering numerous practical applications.
It was a fantastic and enriching experience!
