Creative Storytelling for Integration and Resilience
Kirk Johnson, Hanne Pedersen
Research emergent from a currently running Erasmus+ action has shown that efforts to efforts to make a clear and justified case for ICT and creative strategies to help young people in their learning and development. By using animation to instigate scene and story decoding as well as creation, the project has exposed concerns about the assumed efficacy of ICT in education contexts among parents and teachers and created a Framework to defend and legitimize the use of ICT that embraces creativity and self-directed storytelling. The project group for Alt-ER 2.0 is made up of a mix of 5 higher education and research institutions and an SME that work in fields attendant to game-based learning, pedagogy, and animation as a tool for learning and self-expression and covers the countries of Denmark, the Netherlands, Finland, Italy, and
Belgium, who make a compelling case for ICT and storytelling as a bridge between the classroom and home while charting development and growth in early childhood education and care.
