Take part in an international digital storytelling competition!

For the 2014-15 school year, TALES has partnered with PoliCulturaExpoMilano2015, a world-wide digital storytelling initiative on the theme of the upcoming Universal Exposition “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”.
Through a specially-dedicated path within the competition, TALES offers European schools the unique opportunity of taking part in a global educational experience, by proposing a digital storytelling competition devoted to key competences acquisition.
Who can participate?
Classes/groups of students of all school levels, supervised by at least one teacher.
What do participants have to do?
Create an interactive multimedia story, with an easy-to-use authoring tool made available to all registered participants. Minimum effort: a “short story” (~5 minutes long); maximum effort: a “complete story” (20-25 min long). Stories must be in English, to allow for mutual sharing across Europe (and the world).
What should the story be about?
Any topic, provided it is somehow related to the Universal Exposition theme; a lot of issues are raised by the Exposition, ranging from sustainability to biodiversity, from local traditions (food, agriculture…) to legends and stories about food, from world hunger to health problems, etc. Participants are provided with plenty of resources and support to link their subject to the Exposition theme.
Why to participate?
To take part in a truly international educational experience, meeting peers from all across Europe (and the rest of the world); to involve students in a highly engaging activity providing substantial benefits, especially in terms of key competences: intercultural communication, media literacy, group-work….
All the stories will be made public not only in the TALES website but also at the Universal Exposition premises, thus giving visibility to the participants’ countries in this important event.
Quali sono le date importanti?
Le iscrizioni sono aperte; la deadline per sottomettere i lavori è il 15 giugno 2015.
…e se volessi creare una storia digitale senza partecipare al concorso?
Si può! Basta chiedere accesso allo strumento autore scrivendo a: nicoletta.diblas@polimi.it. Le storie completate verranno rese pubbliche (su richiesta) nel sito di TALES.
Le iscrizioni al concorso principale sono chiuse
Ci si può iscrivere al concorso “Short story” fino al 31 maggio
