We’re excited to announce that a new Persian Lesson Pack is available in StoryMaker 2, which you can download right now in the Play Store. Beginning with a comprehensive revision of the lessons by our curriculum team in V2, the lessons were then rewritten into a new story path format, and all 48,000 words were professionally translated into Persian.
To make the content even easier to use for Persian speakers in Iran and elsewhere Brian Conley oversaw production of localized multimedia files in Kurdistan a few weeks back. The lessons now contain about 100 unique Persian examples to make the lessons as relevant as possible for a Persian audience.
The new pack contains 49 lessons, covering a range of subjects including: story theory, journalism, security, audio, video and photo production. The lessons have hundreds of multimedia files integrated in to make concepts approachable and easy to understand.
Here are some examples from the new packs
What are the important shots to capture when photographing a protest?
WHAT DOES A PERSONAL INTRODUCTION TO AN AUDIO STORY SOUND LIKE?
How do you obscurE your subjects face?
One Click Playback
With the latest improvements in StoryMaker 2, video and audio files play directly in the lesson, making it faster and easier to review why the lessons are important while seeing and hearing them at the same time.
Each lesson ends with a quiz to allow you to test yourself on what you learned.
We look forward to your feedback on the lessons, our curriculum team is continuing to iterate and explore the best use case.
