Join us at Cornell University on Friday, March 16, 2018, for the latest in a series of special workshops showcasing the use of multimedia storytelling, as used by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Salopek as he walks across the globe.
The Pulitzer Center is partnering with Cornell to organize "Slow Storytelling in the Digital Age: A Hands-On Workshop for Educators," led by Don Belt, a longtime National Geographic writer and editor and colleague of Salopek. This session is the latest in a series of special workshops designed for educators seeking new ways to use multimedia storytelling in the classroom–and to get students to slow down to explore their communities.
Belt shares the community-based Slow Journalism curriculum he teaches at the University of Richmond, which is modeled on Salopek’s Out of Eden Walk. Campus Consortium coordinator, Kayla Sharpe, joins Belt for the workshop.
The Pulitzer Center is one of the main education partners for the Out of Eden Walk, a 10-year digital media project tracing the path of ancient human migration from Ethiopia to the tip of South America.
