New interactive media software is being taught to teenagers in Kinson, Bournemouth as part of a collaboration between AIM charity and lecturers from Bournemouth University.
The free workshops have been on offer to local young people who have been working together to develop their skills in digital storytelling through the Genarrator platform. A new software that allows the audience to take an active role, it was created by Dr Jim Pope who is the BA English Programme Leader at Bournemouth University. He brought a number of professionals with him to the centre in Kinson including scriptwriters, producers and photographers, who all ran workshops for the teenagers.
