Video Curricula Story and Digital storytelling for volunteer operators in civil service
Digital storytelling is considered a valid tool for self-assessment of the skills acquired by the individual in non-formal and informal learning contexts, such as work, volunteering, community life. The path proposed in this laboratory is aimed at volunteer operators in the civil service, engaged in projects of the Youth Energy Citizenship Network promoted by CSV Lazio, within the mentoring process.
During the workshop, participants are asked to produce their own video curriculum through digital storytelling, starting from the re-elaboration of the experiences lived in their service contexts, noting the skills acquired in informal learning contexts and monitoring their development in itinere. The skills described and narrated during the storytelling workshops include both specific and transversal skills related to the tasks and activities carried out by the volunteer operator as part of their project. Furthermore, the sharing of one’s own service experiences within the working group stimulates a shared reflection on the personal and collective value of the Service path, favoring the emergence of unresolved strengths and criticalities.
Ultimately, the goal of the workshop is to produce short and effective self-narratives that contain the skills acquired and the qualities developed, which highlight attitudes, professional vocations, fundamental motivations, plans for the future, drawing an accurate profile and therefore usable for the job search activity.
