NFB Digital Storytelling Workshops

Part of the Canada CODE side-events of the Olympics (and why not!!) NFB presents its storytelling traveling show:

super cool and an incredible opportunity for those who wish to participate.

The goal of the program is for participants to contribute to Canada CODE and learn about the NFB collection at the same time. We???ll have bilingual facilitators traveling across Canada to deliver 3 types of workshops:

  • Student/participant workshops ??? a full day, hands-on program designed for delivery in-class.
  • Educator workshops ??? a 3 hour hands-on program to provide educators with the tools to deliver a digital storytelling workshop to their students.
  • Conference workshops ??? a 1 ??? 2 hour lecture-style program with hands-on activities designed to build awareness and encourage educators, community leaders and librarians to deliver digital storytelling workshops to various people.

If you want to host or organize a workshop in your community, just call Melissa Wheeler at or at (416) 973.0896.

Canada CODE gives people who live in Canada a collaborative way to share who we are with each other and the world. Show the world what we're made of - upload short stories and photos about your daily life and neighbourhood now.

/EDU, the online education portal for the Vancouver 2010 Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC), in collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and 2010 Legacies Now, are developing an educator???s guide to help Canadian teachers connect Canada CODE activities to their curriculum through art-infused education.
