Digital Storytelling: Bryan Alexander

People have been creating digital stories since before the web began but only recently have so many powerful media for sharing these stories become available to the general population. Today's digital storytelling is not just for tech-savvy individuals; anyone with a desire to express their creativity can learn to use modern technology to share their stories.

Bryan Alexander will discuss the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling, weaving images, text, audio, video, and music together. He will draw upon the latest technologies, insights from the latest scholarship, and his own extensive experience to describe the narrative creation process with personal video, blogs, podcasts, digital imagery, multimedia games, social media, and augmented reality -- all platforms that offer new pathways for creativity, interactivity, and self-expression.

Bryan Alexander is senior fellow at the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE) and author of The New Digital Storytelling: Creating Narratives with New Media (Praeger, 2011). He researches, writes, and speaks about emerging trends in the integration of inquiry, pedagogy, and technology and their potential application to liberal arts contexts. His current research interests include emerging pedagogical forms enabled by mobile technologies, learning processes and outcomes associated with gaming and augmented reality, the rise of digital humanities, the transformation of scholarly communication, digital storytelling, and futurist methodologies.
