As part of her Fulbright program and exchange of expertise at the University College of Teacher Education Vienna, Ms. Olga DeJesus, a PhD specialist in migration from Mercy College in New York, gave a lecture titled “Empowering the Diverse Learner through Digital Storytelling”.
Based on different learning requirements of the learner, Ms. DeJesus discussed the potential of digital storytelling with regard to diverse learning and development opportunities. Whereas her approach focused on conditions and a course of action in successful digital storytelling, she also pinpointed the advantages and disadvantages of this new practice in education.
The audience was impressed with the practical examples which showcased that digital storytelling can be implemented in numerous fields outside classroom teaching and thus provides an enormous benefit for lifelong learning.
