Visual Storytelling: Basic Shots, Enhanced! - Workshop Information


We are pleased to announce the new, enhanced, online, and hosted, STEM Pre-Academy Digital Media Mini Workshop: Visual Storytelling: Basic Shots, Enhanced.  The workshop will be available as a live, online session, but participants are also invited to come to any of the hosted locations listed below.  

Enhanced, you say?  Yes!  While this workshop will cover much of same material that was presented in the original Basic Shots workshop, we will also be going deep into how to apply what you've learned to your own classroom teaching.

The workshop is limited to 25 STEM Pre-Academy participants and public elementary and high school teachers on a first-come, first-served basis.

Visual Storytelling: Basic Shots, Enhanced

Visual storytelling is a form of communication that is a fundamental 21st century skill.  It is a way of communicating simple ideas through the composition of images, both still and moving. In this workshop, you will learn how to enhance your story or presentation through the careful application of your own photos. 

By understanding how people look at and gather information from images, you can direct the eye and present a strong, precise message without words.​ The session includes teacher sharing and examples.

The knowledge and skills obtained from this workshop can be applied in any subject and across any grade level.

Hawai‘i Public Middle School teachers; Hawai‘i Public Elementary and High School teachers are welcomed on space available basis – please inquire.
