The European project LIDA Learning Inclusion in a Digital Age (Ref. 2021­1­NO01­KA204­076518), funded under the Erasmus+ programme, addressed the topics of inclusive education and active citizenship for dis- advantaged adults through the use of digital storytelling. This article pre- sents the evaluation process of the LIDA digital resources realized during the training workshops for teachers and educators on the use of digital storytell- ing, which involved a variety of target groups (economically disadvantaged adults, migrants, students). The results highlighted the powerful potentials of digital storytelling in education and laid the groundwork for a more ex- tensive use of such approach with the aim of fostering social cohesion and ultimately promoting the inclusion of vulnerable individuals.

Keywords: digital storytelling, social inclusion, migrants, refugees, vulnerable people.
