StoryMaps and visual storytelling: your results in context – Wednesday 10 August

Storytelling is a powerful tool for sharing your mahi with a wider audience - be it your whānau, community, local council or potential funders. This webinar will take you through the basics of using StoryMaps, an online storytelling platform using maps, words and images. We will also share ways you can use your Wilderwheel graphic to show what species you discovered, including interactive activities you can do as a group.
