Abstract

The Dirty War that happened in Argentina was and still is a very touchy subject for the people who live there. It was a huge historical event that took place from 1976-1983. I think everyone should have some understanding of the devastation that occurred. I made this video to try to interest people to research and find out more about the Dirty War. I can’t believe that I have lived for 23 years and have never heard about this. The Dirty War is one of those events that you want to learn about so history doesn't repeat itself.

About the session:

Digital storytelling is a powerful tool for helping students bring their study abroad experience full circle. The process of creating a digital story leads students to reflect more deeply on their time abroad as they brainstorm, create storyboards, write scripts, and finally produce their stories.

Inspired by the work of the Center for Digital Storytelling and the Digital Storytelling Working Group, Western Oregon University's Office of Study Abroad and International Exchanges, in collaboration with WOU's Writing Center, has implemented digital storytelling as one of the requirements for the Study Abroad Capstone Project.
