    • What is Digital Storytelling?
      Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Digital stories derive their power by weaving images, music, narrative and voice together, thereby giving deep dimension and vivid color to characters, situations, experiences, and insights.

    • What are the Benefits?
      • Digital storytelling develops visual and multimedia literacy in students.
      • Digital storytelling provides students with a competitive and compelling
      voice by enlarging the boundaries of who students can communicate with
      and by increasing the depth and power of that communication.
      • Digital storytelling permits students to recapture creativity, develop it and
      intensify it, apply it, extend it…
      • Digital storytelling helps students write more effectively by permitting the
      visualization of the writing, resulting in an additional level of perception
      that extends the writing process to a place seldom reached.
      • Digital storytelling provides an authentic personal learning experience- as
      such; student investment is greatly increased resulting in greatly improved
      motivation and end product.
      • Digital storytelling teaches elements of technology and information
      literacy-students use many different computer applications and must be
      conversant about locating and managing visuals and video, as well as
      being able to do so in the context of copyright and fair use.
