Ohler Delivers Keynote in Baton Rouge
Digital storytelling and new media used for personal narrative and outreach.
Professor Jason Ohler has just returned from Louisiana, where he served as keynote speaker for the state's educational technology conference and engaged in volunteer work to help survivors of hurricane ravaged Baton Rouge. He worked in Baton Rouge schools, helping students use digital storytelling and new media in the area of personal narrative. He also worked with the LSU architecture students in a special digital storytelling outreach program that helps recovering addicts. "The architecture students will take the information they learn in the workshop and use it next semester when they pair up with the recovering addicts and help them tell their stories in digital form on the Bethel Colony South Website," said Ohler.
