We were thrilled to welcome Karen Ray of RememberingTheTime to our Zoomin' on Ponga series with “Tips & Techniques for Storytelling on Ponga.” Karen Ray brings her unique perspective on family storytelling to Ponga as a member herself. As our guest speaker, Karen talked about her process with fun interactive exercises and suggestions for ways you might use Ponga in different ways.
The pandemic has made remote video communications with Zoom and other tools as ordinary as a touch-tone phone. This course will leverage that experience to describe a new way to connect elders with the younger generation through photographs using storytelling over Zoom. We’ll describe how to use Ponga as the basis of the storytelling so that stories, and the experience of sharing them, can be captured for future generations. We’ll discuss variables that can be adjusted depending on the cognitive and technical abilities of children, parents, and grandparents.
The pandemic has given us all time to reflect on the power of everyday objects to connect us with our own history. This course will show how to use Ponga to explore your history in artifacts using Ponga pictures so that stories are passed down with considerations for safe, long-term storage and legacy that can provide provenance and connection for future generations.
