According to CDS, digital storytelling is a short, first person video-narrative created by combining recorded voice, still and moving images, and music or other sounds.
Element #1—Why was there a need for Digital Storytelling Element #2—The Research leading to Digital Storytelling Element #3—Development of Digital Storytelling Element #4—How and when introduced to the public
People needed a way to tell a story using video. Technology enabled those to produce works that told a story using images and sound that were very similar to a movie.
A group of media artists, designers, and practitioners, including Joe Lambert and Dana Atchley, came together in the early 1990’s to San Francisco to explore how personal narrative and storytelling could be incorporated in a form of technology . Digital Storytelling was also used by Ken Burns in the Joe Lambert discussing digital documentary ―The Civil War‖ storytelling

• In 1986, Joe Lambert, the executive director of the new Life On The Water Theater Company, meet a local video producer named Dana Atchley after she viewed a production.• In 1988, Lambert and Atchley worked together to collaborate and develop Atchley’s Next Exit, an interactive theoretical performance (White, 2010).
In 1993, Lambert and Atchely taught three digital storytelling workshops for documentary filmmakers at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, California. These workshops were provided by the Center for Digital Storytelling (White, 2010).
In the years between 1994 and 1998,Atchley, Lambert and Lamber’s wife, NinaMullen created workshops whichconverted home movies into digitalstories that were created by Life on theWater (White, 2010).
In 1994, Digital storytelling was featured on CNN and MSNBC.The San Fransico Digital Media Center, SFDMC, collaborated withnumerous organizations in England, Germany, and Denmark during1994. (White, 2010). In 1996, the first Digital Storytelling Cookbook was publishedby SFDMC. It was a hands-on production tutorial using SFDMCnarration. ‚With support from Apple Computer, the SFDMCpublishes the first version of the Digital Storytelling Cookbook,outlining the ‘Seven Elements’ of digital storytelling and offeringhands-on production tutorials‛ (Center for Digital Storytelling).http://www.storycenter.org/cookbook.html Preview of a digital copy of the Digital Storytelling Cookbook

What is the S- Curve? S-Curve – Innovation The S-shaped curve of adoption is the normal curve that ―accelerates to a maximum until half of the individuals on the systems have adopted. Then it increases at a gradually slower rate as fewer and fewer remaining individuals adopt the innovation.‖ (Rogers, 2003, p. 272). Digital storytelling began in the 1990’s. Digital storytelling hasn’t reached full potential or complete adoption due to it’s newness.

Critical mass ―occurs at Critical mass was reachedthe point at which enough in 1999 when the demand individuals in a system for CDS annual workshopshave adopted an innovation and training was requested so that the innovations nationally and further rate of adoption internationally becomes self-sustaining‖ (CDS, 2009). (Rogers, 2003, p.344). Critical mass is reached in education when the teachers and faculty are wanting and attending training for digital storytelling.
