Tell your story


Why is it important to integrate storytelling and digital storymapping in educational processes?


Tell Your Story aims at exploring the use  of  digital  storytelling  and  story mapping  in  education  to combat early school leaving. In our experience, early school leaving can be prevented enhancing communication and digital skills among the younsters.


What has been done so far?


Each partners have implemented “My decision, my action, my future” workshops for preventing early drop-out through digital stories and maps.





This third learning module capitalizes on the outputs produced in the piloting of O2 How to tell a (life) story and O3 Media production skills. While the latter informal learning activities are targeted at those young people who have already dropped out of education and training, the local workshops was addressed to those who are at risk of leaving school early. 


The multimedia life stories produced by the early school leavers were used as the basis for developing a workshop design for young people at risk to prevent them from taking the same decision. The life stories have been discussed in workshops at school or youth organisations and the motivation and consequences of individual early school leaving biographies have been reflected and related to the own life situation. Thus, dropping out form school can be “simulated” in a safe environment and alternative pathways be developed.

TYS stories

The developed concept was tested and evaluated with groups of 15-20 young people in schools or youth organisations in France, Austria, Belgium, Slovenia, Italy and the United Kingdom.


Upcoming Events


The multimedia stories and maps the young early school-leavers have produced are available in an online exhibition on Tell Your Story’s website. Each partner organisation engaged a group of early school leavers in the creation of multimedia stories and maps.

Visit our site and check out the Storymaps they have produced!

Then, the results and recommendations to use and share Tell Your Story’s methodologies will be part of the publication called “Preventing early school leaving through maps and digital stories”.


This publication is a key output to ensure that the experiences gained in the project will be widely visible, transferred and applied.
