    • The Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling Bernard Robin College of Education University of Houston
    • What is Digital Storytelling?
      • Combining the art of telling stories with some mixture of digital graphics, text, recorded audio narration, video and music to present information on a specific topic.
      • Revolve around a theme and often contain a particular viewpoint; stories are typically just a few minutes long.
    • Types of Digital Stories -1
      • Personal Narratives as described by the CDS:
      • Character Stories – explore how we love, who we are inspired by, and the importance of finding meaning in our relationships.
      • Memorial Stories – deal with memories of people who are no longer with us. These stories are often difficult but are emotionally powerful and can help with the grieving process.
      • Stories about Events in Our Lives
        • Adventure Stories – revolve around places we visit and adventures we have in our travels.
        • Accomplishment Stories – deal with achieving goals and understanding defining moments in our lives.
      • Stories about Places in Our Lives – examine the important places in our lives: our homes, our towns, and our experiences that connect us to our communities.
      • Stories about What We Do – allow us to talk about our jobs, professions and careers in terms of how we value and find meaning in the work we do.
      • Other Personal Stories
        • Recovery Stories – deal with how we overcome great obstacles and challenges in our lives.
        • Love Stories – provide us with an opportunity to share some of the most meaningful parts of our lives with the people we most cherish.
        • Discovery Stories – let us reflect on what we have learned and illustrate our journeys of discovery.
