George Petrou from Dimitra holds a copy of the DigEm Guide to Digital Storytelling
In October 2009 Digitales was confirmed as a partner in DiGem (Digital Empowerment), one of 15 pan European partnerships funded by the EU under the KA3 component of the Leonardo Transfer of Innovation element in the Lifelong programme. The partnership was led by Dimitra from Greece and DiGem also included partners from the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Lithuania, Poland and Spain. Digitales delivered approximately 20% of the £500k programme which started in November 2009 and runs for 30 months. DigEm piloted the use of Digital Storytelling as a means to train economically marginalised people with ICT skills to enable them to join the labour force. Outputs completed by DigiTales included a series of Train the Trainer workshops and the writing of the DigEm Guide to Digital Storytelling.
