A digital platform for Social innovation Through digital Storytelling
MetadataShow full item record
Technology plays a big role in our lives. However, many do not have access to technology and the knowledge it provides, giving rise to the so-called digital divide. The purpose of this study is to explore and understand the impact of digital storytelling for social innovation, considering the digital landscape of South Africa. For example, it is important to consider what types of technologies have worked and are still working to capture stories. Furthermore, to consider what skills the end-users would require to use the system and what devices would be best suited for them—PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone—and what software would be required to capture their stories. Finally, access to Wi-Fi or the Internet would need to be economically viable. Despite the vast research that has been done on digital storytelling, not much has been done in terms of its impact on social innovation and how a digital platform should be designed to enrich social innovation and creativity.
