Abstract<br />My WOW presentation will be on Digital Story Telling in the 21st century. Digital Story Telling is an easy and fun way to engage all learners to write and design their own stories. Students can share stories they make up, stories that have happened to them, or share information on a topic or theme. Digital Story Telling allows all students shine and show off their creative minds. Students that are usually quiet and shy really enjoy expressing themselves with this multimedia genre. Digital Story Telling motivates students to write because they can share their stories with the global community and see comments about their work. Digital Story Telling is fun, entertaining, and motivating for students of all ages.<br />
