Twenty-four participants from across Morocco gathered in Rabat on July 1-5 for the first training in the basics of digital storytelling using the StoryMaker app for Android phones. The diverse group included journalists, bloggers, activists, software developers, translators, and other members of Morocco's civil society.
Coordinated by the Centre Ibn Rochd d'Etudes et de Communication, the workshops were led by three individuals that took part in the earlier Training of Trainers workshop held in May 2013. This model of peer-learning is also being replicated in Egypt and Iraq, and is planned for later this year in Tunisia.
Here are some photos and videos of the training taken by Samad Iach from the Centre Ibn Rochd and used with permission.
