I was lucky enough to spend two days of the school holidays at the amazing State Library of Queensland running Story Lab digital storytelling workshops with 9-16 year-olds. We used digital cameras, Story Scrapbook app and Shaun Tan's Odditoreum exhibition for creative inspiration. I worked with some seriously talented young writers who took on their role as story scientists with energy and diligence. Here are the pics...

|We embarked on a digital photography adventure, gathering images for story inspiration.|

|We also used Story Scrapbook app to gather images, video, music web grabs and text in the brainstorming of our stories. (App available free here.)|
