Learning through Story-Telling through Technology: Negotiating Landscapes in Search of Self
This presentation will explore the experience of dislocation resulting from a loss of a sense of place. The exploration takes the form of a narrative journey using fragments of visual memory as records or critical incidents. Using the visual metaphor of landscape, this exploration examines the issues related to self narrative and authorship in the recovery of self through visual memory. The paper will particularly address issues of place, belonging and identity. The presentation will include narratives of photographs, film, digital story, and written experiences whilst undertaking journeys to places in the memoried past.
The presentation will discuss the use of 'digital storytelling' and its role in memoir creation.
