Meeting Description:

International Conference Digital Storytelling
21st-23rd March2012
Valencia, Spain

The Inter-university Institute for Applied Modern Languages of the Comunitat Valenciana (IULMA) & the Departament de Filologia Anglesa i Alemanya at the Universitat de València will be hosting the International Conference on Digital Storytelling between the 21st and 23rd of March 2012 in Valencia (Spain).

Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. It combines music, narrative, and multimedia and the voice of the author and has become both an educational and a cultural phenomenon. Digital Storytelling is currently being used in more than 80 countries with many different applications, including education, tourism, marketing, history, and self-expression, among others.

In this conference we hope to gather here in Valencia those who want to share and explore these new pedagogical/socio-cultural dimensions of digital storytelling as well as those who wish to learn how the use of technology has helped transform the whole experience of storytelling into an exciting new form of personal or professional expression that is within everyone's reach.
