MyStory: Digital Storytelling Toolbox for Diversity Training in Schools

The MYSTY Project provides a means for teachers to share and embed innovative teaching practice to enhance awareness of cultural diversity. At the same time it will increase pupils’ cultural awareness and expression and enhance their social and civic competence.

The project​ will also support teacher and pupil digital competence. MYSTY involves the collection, editing and uploading of digital stories to the MYSTY Digital Storytelling Toolbox website. These stories focus on ‘food’, ‘family’ and ‘festival’ and act as a platform for diversity awareness and digital upskilling.

Teachers will be trained in the use of digital media for storytelling and pupils will conduct and lead on their collection and editing.
