Led by Columbia Digital Storytelling Lab, Story I/O, or "Input/Output," is a highly interactive one-day event to explore new forms and functions of storytelling. This first edition explored the lab's collaborative work with Columbia School of Social Work's SAFE Lab, created a de-escalation room for youth that harnesses story, play, design, and emerging tech. The day also incorporated work by the Program in Narrative Medicine and The Patient Revolution to build simulations for empathetic care that embraced mixed reality and sensor-based technologies.
