Can digital storytelling support the functions of education in the classroom?

About this event

The education philosopher, Gert Biesta, suggests that education should have three functions: qualification (skills needed to get a job), socialisation (able to interact with others) and subjectification (able to be free and emancipated).

Join Literacy Pedagogy Consultant Dr. Phill Simpson as he explores how these three functions can be supported - often simultaneously - through digital storytelling in the classroom. In this webinar, Dr. Simpson illustrates what creative writing using digital technology can look like in the primary classroom through the lens of these functions.
