Student Digital Stories from CTU, Philippines

Second Digital Storytelling Contest at CTU (2022)

As the Covid-19 pandemic swept through the world, our FRIENDS from the Philippines, Thailand, Bhutan, Malaysia and Cambodia were also affected. While the uncertainty around the globe affected all fields of life, FRIENDS’ digital stories transformed into a way of connecting internationally, at least virtually, while no other international travel was allowed.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, another Digital Storytelling contest was conducted in 2022. The winning video creators in the Cebu Technological University are Robert John Roble Jopia, Ke Jay Tudtud, Daisy Torino, and Rabbi Florentino. Their digital stories, as well as the many other submitted, can be viewed at the following link.

First Digital Storytelling Contest at CTU (2020)

In total, 17 student digital stories were developed by students of CTU in the Philippines in the framework of the Digital Storytelling Contest facilitated by the institution. The Contest was conducted in the framework of Intercultural Passport virtual module’s piloting stage at CTU in 2020. You can watch all videos submitted in the Contest below.

The digital stories created by Daisy Torino, Robert John Jopia, Kejay Tudtud and Kathleen Anne Pasaol were ranked first, second, third and respectively fourth based on the assessment of the jury and the number of points collected. Congratulations to the four student winners at CTU!
