VI Partnership Meeting – Florence, November 29

Partner Meeting in Florence,  on the November 29, at Giunti Publisher about “The Publishers and the new e-publishing era”

The meeting took place in Florence has addressed the issue of changes in the world of publishing industry.

The engineer Alessandro Campi, director of the project “digitization” of Giunti Publisher has explained how to change the manufacturing process in the industry. The engineer Alessandro Campi pointed out that some professionals are disappearing (e.g. printer) and mainly are changing the professions of “intermediation”.

The author of a publication can apply directly to his audience and overcome the role of the publisher. But many problems remain open: for example, there are no standards shared by all the new “e-publishers”,  many publishers (or virtual distribution marketplace as Amazon) force people  to use their hardware to be able to use their digital contents  … etc …

The “digital revolution” in publishing is still in its initial stage but involves issues related to copyright, the scientific validation, methods of use, the “construction” of a culture accessible to all citizens, the power of the new online-marketplace, etc… .

What is sure, is the fact that “writing and reading” will face with new approach in a few years and the jobs linked to this industry will be forced to change their approach. An example of a revolution in the writing is represented from Wikipedia: Dr. Susanna Giaccai – member of the board of wikipedia Italian Italian – he explained how it works and check the correctness of the content of wikipedia. Susanna Giaccai gave examples of work, implying “from” how does a virtual editing board.

Free University of Berlin: “cross-cultural digital storytelling”

The Free University of Berlin developed a teaching module for students of the Master Program Visual and Media Anthropology dealing with cross-cultural digital storytelling. It will also be available password-protected on the overall projects website itself. A first pilot course took place in April 2013 entitled ‘Digital Storytelling in Transcultural Filmmaking.’

Without a doubt, adequate knowledge of current forms of e-publishing is one important tool for university students and lecturers to achieve and maintain academic excellence in the digital age. The according ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) offer the opportunity to use and combine different technological tools of communication enabling people to exchange, share and disseminate information in a way not imaginable one decade ago. These opportunities also include what is called ‘Digital Storytelling‘, the combination of different media formats like photo, text and video by means of digital technology – playing an even growing role within the academic framework. It appears that in regard to cross-cultural communication and international understanding the possibilities digital storytelling is offering are still waiting to be fully understand and implemented within the academic field and beyond.

Whereas at the same time the technological opportunities and developments are increasing in a never before known pace. Students learned all steps to realize an own digital story telling project with a focus on transcultural film. Students were guided through all the steps of a digital story telling production: finding an idea, presenting it, pre-production, production and post-production. The Inhouse classes focused on the pitch, introduction to the digital video equipment, filming strategies, the actual shoot and editing outdoor. By the end of the pilot course students had produced a five to ten minute digital story telling project.

Even though this pilot course was primarily practical, it’s aim is to contribute to the formation of academically trained scientists. To this end, throughout the course, the link between practical choices and aesthetics and anthropological theory was stressed. Second edition will take place in September.

In Ireland was organized a Pilot Course titled Learning to Learn

The activities focused on the preparation for return to Learning in the context of reading writing and composition (story telling). A blended learning learner focused combination of presentations discussions, case studies, peer learning, group learning and opportunities for practice and feed-back. This process is supported via a virtual learning platform. The target group was 39 disadvantaged adult learners from the Settled and Traveler Communities (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Travellers). The course took place in Galway from 08.10.12 to 25.02.13.

The target group was composed from 30 Community Based Trainers. It took place from 11.03.13 to 27.03.2013.

TUCEP at Perugia, Italy: a laboratory on “therapeutic creative writing”

Laboratories & workshops in Perugia, Italy

A second Laboratory in Italy has been held in Perugia from 19 to 21 April 2013 during  External link Fantacity Festivalwere the project was promoted and disseminated.

The laboratory, was divided into two phases: the first of understanding and dialogue (and, as far as possible, a summary of the general rules of base), while the second production written. During the first phase has been explained how to build a simple tale, from the choice of the kind to that of the characters, from the description of each one of the places that, until the termination of the plot. In the next step we have chosen to focus on your description of the character.  The participants (young people between 20 and 30 years) were asked to make the idea of a character of their choice in a text of no more than 300 characters. Once you have finished each one of them has read their own work in front of the companions, who had to guess who it was talking about.
