MYS – Me and Your Stories – is a pan-European project that puts the learner at the heart of the community and the classroom by providing powerful storytelling tools on a digital platform.
Sharing stories helps people understand and celebrate difference. The MYS toolbox enables young people to share their own stories, as well as reflect on each other’s, by capturing their voices, thoughts and experiences using photos and videos.
This project supports inclusion by making it easier for everyone to have a voice and for all those voices to be heard as part of a bigger conversation about diversity and difference.
The MYS conference on Thursday 14 October is an opportunity for educators and people who support people with learning disabilities to come together, be inspired, and share ideas about the different ways in which we can use digital to open up the world to people who are more likely to be excluded from it.
Dr Nicola Grove, an expert in the field of storytelling, will be the keynote speaker at the conference.
I believe passionately in the value of the lives of all individuals, linked to each other through our shared stories.
Through stories we find out about new experiences and ideas, develop empathy and imagination, and learn how to face challenges and solve problems.
