Hackastory Tools


Our participants will leave the workshop with a full understanding of digital storytelling. They explore the new opportunities created by digital technology and how to use them to tell online stories. They don’t just leave with a stack of notes. We believe in learning by doing. Through this experience skills for web based storytelling will grow, confidence will increase and a new practice to be future proof in media and journalism will be created.

Let’s make one thing clear: the story will always be the most important part, not its technical bells and whistles.
