Swedish Youths Engaged in Workshop on Digital Storytelling

During a weekend in mid-January a group of 13-17-year-olds attended a workshop in Stockholm on digital storytelling. The topic was “A day on the Internet” and the teens set out to create individual short films with the use of multimedia technology combining voice, pictures, movies, music and sampling.

Fun and thought-provoking digital stories evolved with the help of group discussions and vivid aid from experienced seminar leaders. The self-told stories portrayed the life of young people on the internet in inspiring ways. Subjects ranged from anonymity on the net and digital harassment, to the difference between life on the net and real life, as well as the social possibilities of the net.
