Digital Storytelling

Jane Van Galen, a first-generation college student now an Education Professor at University of Washington Bothell, has posted fourteen digital stories created by first-generation college students, First In Our Families: Digital Stories of First Generation Students. A collaboration with Class Action, each story is just a few minutes as the author reads a prose poem with images, music and silence woven into “elegant multimedia pieces about pride, growth, anger, tenacity, doubt, shame, and discovery as they navigate the invisible cultural and social norms of higher education.”
