FYS Section A17. Mobile Storytelling

How are mobile devices facilitating and changing the nature of our digital selves? What impact are they having on our offline life? How does mobile technology foster creativity? What new forms of storytelling have emerged in this digital era? Mobile Storytelling will confront these questions in an intensive project-based class experience. By using a variety of apps on their mobile devices, students will explore writing, photography, animation, audio recording, filmmaking, and graphic arts to learn the art of storytelling and creative expression in the digital age. Additionally, students will critically examine the role of mobile devices in society and their own lives through online discussions, lightning talk presentations, and select texts.
