Who tells your Story?

Welcome to Storychasers, a passion project of Wes Fryer of Matthews, North Carolina!

I invite you to become your family's "digital witness," archiving the voices and stories of family members which can be preserved and shared for generations.

January 2013, TEDxOU, Norman, Oklahoma

As a current middle school STEM and media literacy teacher in Charlotte, one of my favorite units for my students in "Computer Applications" is our "Family Oral History Unit." I offer workshops and webinars to empower both younger students as well as adults as digital storytellers. Since 2013 I've maintained the website ShowWithMedia.com, which highlights a variety of media projects that allow you to "show what you know with media."
