Adapting pedagogies in digital performance with young refugees and migrants 

Inside. Outside. And Beyond is a digital storytelling project conducted with migrant and refugee youth in Ireland. The study used digital storytelling workshops and interviews, investigating how the 2020 lockdown affected students’ sense of belonging and motivation to speak English. Nested within a study on performative language learning and belonging, the study examined whether the lockdown restrictions have re-written the boundaries of inclusion and exclusion or sense of belonging in young refugees and migrants. This workshop demonstrates storytelling and drama pedagogies which were adapted for the online learning environment. We discuss successful aspects of the project that assisted in giving learners connection and agency in their learning environment, as well as the technological, personal and performative challenges.
