Creating And Sharing Digital Stories

Sharing the Digital Story

When all of the digital stories are finished, participants may decide whether they want to keep their videos private, or show them publicly.

Some participants may decide to start showing their videos semi-privately, to family members and close friends, to solicit feedback on their stories before deciding to show their videos to a broader audience.

One of the goals of a digital storytelling project is to share knowledge and promote awareness and better understanding around the intergenerational effects of residential schools and reconciliation. Public displays of the digital creations are an effective way to share the stories that are created by children of survivors.

There are several other options available for digital storytellers to share their messages publicly. For example:

  • The stories may be posted on various websites, on television and shared with radio stations.
  • Information about the digital storytelling project and excerpts from the narrative scripts may be published in news reports, journal articles and other visual, audio and written publications.
  • The videos may be included in course curriculums and used for education and teaching purposes
