10 These are some of events we have done

11 Our participation in this project Workshop Format: Two types WORKSHOPS – our proposals First step : intensive 3 day workshop – Teachers and Active ageing master Students (the master students are Folks who work directly with senior citizens) Second step: intensive 5 day workshop –Old people from Senior university: IPL; Porto de Mós; Casa Museu João Soares- In this step will participating teachers and students who took the 1º step (to 'reproduce' the workshops with (a) senior citizens

12 Prerequisites for admission to workshops No prerequisites Because we did not suggest prerequisites for admission we suggest that the workshops for the elderly must have 5 days. The first two days: Basic computer ability (including internet use), ability to navigate a computer directory system, and ability to use basic word processing programs.

13 Conference Date: June – second Week or July - first week – two days Some ideas_ The Conference must have:  Results of the project  One conference about the power of digital storytelling  Testimonials from participants in workshops on: participation in this workshop had gains? What gains what has changed in their life  The best digital stories produced in workshops must be showed  the digital storytelling training should be inclusive (for the blind and the deaf)

14 our ideas for the stories Reminiscence therapy for people with Alzheimer's and digital storytelling The person with dementia and their families must create some digital storytelling's about positive memories. when people with dementia are confused and agitated their families can explore the digital stories created with them Reminiscence therapy invites a person with Alzheimer's to exercise her long-term memory by encouraging her to share positive memories from younger days.

15 Resilience and emotional aspects of women ageing in Peniche – Portugal Peniche is a fishing area where economic and personal life depends mostly on either fishing activities or manufacturing sector related to it. Old women told us interesting stories that depict how women live fishing, waiting for fishing boats in the middle of the night, how they care for children and lived their marriage, which reconstruct the way of life of the last eighty years in this city.

16 Storytelling to promote hope Hope is essential to life. Telling stories is a powerful situation to allow people to explore their own experiences of hope. Sharing positive experiences with others influences others’ perspectives and could turn the negative perspective into a new way of looking the reality. By sharing hope stories, people can play a hope role model for others and have a positive impact on other people’s hopes (Querido, 2012). Querido is a teacher from my school and my PhD student. She use digital stories to promote hope and quality of life in people at end of life with good results
