4. Visual methods, digital story telling

Our next submodule, number four, is around the idea of digital story telling. Digital story telling and the ‘most significant change’ technique. This is about storytelling and connecting to other people and it helps those who are participating in the story to get a better understanding of your world and the way that you see it. Our presenter here is Daniela Gachago, senior lecturer at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
