  • 11. 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.
