The Learning Renaissance

Digital Storytelling using Photo Story: Flowerpod

This is a Photo Story used to tell a simple story. The twist is that it was compiled by a number of adults with learning difficulties whom I work with at the Reach Flowerpod charity.

They chose the words, the images and the soundtrack and used the software to compile it.

Too often when dealing with individuals with special educational needs the drive is on focussing predominantly on basic skills and literacy. I’ve found that it is much more beneficial to focus on creativity and let the literacy and functional skills develop from the creative process.

Dazed and confused much of the time but convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans.
