River Stories -- Creating and Publishing Multilingual Digital Stories with Twine
Time: June 5, 12:45-1:45 pm MT, Edmonton (45 mins hands-on tutorial followed by 15 mins Q/A)
Workshop description: Join Mary McDonald, one of Pinnguaq’s traveling Digital Stewards team, as she leads you through creating and publishing a digital story using the open source software, Twine. In this hands-on tutorial, learn how to use the basic concepts of coding to create interactive and engaging non-linear, “river stories”. The Twine cheat sheet she has developed will help you incorporate interesting digital effects into your narratives. Leverage Twine to create and publish interactive fiction and nonfiction in heritage languages to support language literacy development.
Instructor: Mary is an educator, writer and media artist who loves to collaborate. Mary gets really excited about participatory media digital arts projects and believes in the potential for creative technologies to inspire individuals and connect communities. Mary’s next adventures include creating sound compositions of letters from WWI. Mary has a B.Ed, specializing in Special Education and Language Literacy and is currently finishing off her Master’s of Educational Technology degree through UBC. She has taught in Canada and at international schools in Africa and in Asia. Mary loves traveling to meet new people, learn about different ways of being, and experiencing new landscapes.
