Step-by-step - what has to be done

The trainer will support 3 –5 participants to present their example digital story and accompanying flipchart paper (as per prerequisite independent study task).

They will do this by:
1. Provide each participant 3 – 5 minutes to present their story and flipchart (timing dependent on numbers).
2. Follow the presentations, for participants to add their reflective responses written on post-it notes to the following questions that will be written on flipcharts hung around the room:

  1. What forms can stories take?
  2. What can we learn about people/society from stories?
  3. How can stories be used to create/influence change?

Nb: The trainer(s) should be grouping the responses as they are added to the flipchart sheets.
