StoryTrails and The British Libraries’ Living Knowledge Network are partnering on the ‘Summer of Stories’ webinar series.
The two-part webinar series aims to give public libraries across the UK the opportunity to discover what we really mean by immersive storytelling from StoryFutures Academy, the UK’s National Centre for Immersive Storytelling. In the first webinar, we will be introducing immersive and discussing how libraries can use immersive technology and storytelling with their communities.
The 2nd webinar will be exploring the Get Immersive with the Gadgeteers Activity Toolkit which is a free resource, developed for libraries and schools across the UK. The resource which is based on this year’s Summer Reading Challenge theme Science and Innovation will provide library staff with accessible and creative ideas on how to include immersive storytelling in your Summer Reading Challenge sessions in 2022 (and beyond!).
