Digital Storytelling and Web 2.0: Feedback from Participant

It is encouraging to hear feedback, good and otherwise, from participants and organizers of  workshops and seminars I conduct. Some would send thank you messages. Others would ask for copies of my presentations. I am very much willing to share, of course, but with the request that they cite their sources and pursue further readings or studies on the matter.

One participant, Reech Ruiz of Statesfield School Cavite, sent in her insight gathered from the Digital Storytelling workshop I conducted with Phoenix Educational Systems. She says --

I have learned that librarians...evolve, in terms of  purpose in shaping the minds of the learners. It’s no longer sticking to... traditional role that is limited to provide the services to the clientele. It’s like coming out of the shell just like my personal experience. Nowadays, librarians in a functional library can perform multitasking to the extent of having a modular teaching of Information Literacy Program to the grade school and high school as part of the school’s curriculum. And having that workshop in outsourcing the use of digital facilities as aid in teaching, gave...another stack of knowledge that we may be able to alleviate our strategies in delivering our lesson and activity to the learners.

More power to you to empower Librarians like me.
Thanks Reech! May we see each other again in another learning venue.

I agree with what Ms. Reech had wrote. At first i thought that storytelling was just like this and like that for as long as you talk in front. But I was wrong, I am grateful that I have been a part of this seminar for most of what I have learned in here could be applied as I am a fresh grad and starting the career as a pre-school librarian. It was a two thumbs up for the resource speaker for she has given all the information and spices for a successful and fruitful storytelling.

Same here Ms. Sheila, this seminar/workshop aids to Librarians like us who eventually have teaching activities to students.
