Digital Storytelling in the Classroom
Digital Storytelling is said to be the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling.
Digital Storytelling is an emerging term, one that arises from a grassroots movement that uses new digital tools to help ordinary people tell their own 'true stories' in a compelling and emotionally engaging form. These stories usually take the form of a relatively short story (less than 8 minutes) and can involve interactivity. The term can also be a broader journalistic reference to the variety of emergent new forms of digital narratives (web-based stories, interactive stories, hypertexts, and narrative computer games). As an emerging area of creative work, the definition of digital storytelling is still the subject of much debate." --
Digital Storytelling can be done using audio podcasts, slideshows, videos, photo essays, webpages, comics, even a wiki. There are many tools that can be used to compose digital stories, some are software based while others are web based solutions. Information about the various tools can be found on the
