Ribeiro, Sandra; Moreira, António; da Silva, Cristina Pinto
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (11th, Porto, Portugal, Oct 25-27, 2014)
In tandem with the deep structural changes that have taken place in society, education must also shift towards a teaching approach focused on learning and the overall development of the student. The integration of technology may be the drive to foster the needed changes. We draw on the literature of pertaining to the role of emotions and interpersonal relationships in the learning process; the technological evolution of storytelling towards Digital Storytelling and its connections to education. We argue Digital Storytelling is capable of challenging HE contexts, namely the emotional realm, where the private vs. public dichotomy is more prominent. Ultimately we propose Digital Storytelling as the aggregator capable of personalizing Higher Education while developing essential skills and competences. [For the complete proceedings, see ED557311.]
