The Importance of Digital Storytelling
Digital Storytelling is a commonplace phrase these days. It is critical that students and professionals from all walks of life become at least comfortable – if not adept – with this form of communication. Everyone has a story to tell. Sharing our experiences can enrich the lives of others, help those close to us celebrate events, achievements, and generate awareness of our own value to the community at large. Join Adobe’s Jim Babbage to learn more about how Adobe is democratizing the creative space, making it easier than ever for students and faculty to become active creators of content – to tell their own stories.
