Theme of this term: Biofiction.
As we swiftly enter the dawn of the new year, a time synonymous with reflection, resolutions, and the embrace of fresh inspiration, our upcoming online JR Podcaster course takes the spotlight. This term, in the spirit of embracing new narratives, we’re directing our focus to the captivating world of Biofiction storytelling. In this course, we invite students to explore the art of weaving imaginative stories inspired by real individuals, breathing life into their unique tales and adding a dash of creativity to the upcoming year.
Our aim is to guide students in crafting compelling narratives that draw inspiration from real people, infusing the art of storytelling with a creative twist. Whether it’s exploring the untold aspects of a person’s life, reimagining historical events, or adding a speculative touch to real-life stories, Biofiction opens the door to a world of storytelling possibilities.
In this online course, students will not only delve into the technical aspects of podcast creation, such as using audio recording software like Audacity (compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and other operating systems), but also focus on nurturing their storytelling abilities. The curriculum encompasses Biofiction scriptwriting, voice guidance, audio recording and editing, and the integration of music and sound effects to enhance the storytelling experience.
Teens, brimming with imaginative tales, will find a platform to give voice to their creative narratives. Our mentors will curate selected works, showcasing them on JR Art Lab’s YouTube channel, allowing young storytellers to share their Biofiction masterpieces with a broader audience.
*For individual story creation, we’ll be using Google Docs and Audacity. Please visit https://www.audacityteam.org/ for more information about Audacity, the free and cross-platform audio software utilized in this course.
