Digital Stories Preserving History

Burnett Mary Regional Group – Digital Stories – a new focus to preserve history

In my searches of my topic, I stumbled upon a site that highlights workshops and one was specifically about how digital storytelling is saving the stories of Elders from extinction.  However I’m quite angry that there were no links to the information they were describing.  I would have liked to see some examples of what has been created to document histories of local families.  The idea sounds great but disappointing that there’s no proof to see what they’ve come up with.  A good lesson in what to remember to include on a site:  if you talk about examples, provide links or copies of the examples so the audience you’re trying to reach can understand what you’re trying to describe.
