INTRODUCTION <ul><li>&quot;Digital storytelling begins with the notion that in the not too distant future, sharing one's story through multiple medium of imagery, text, voice, sound, music, video and animation will be the principal hobby of the world's people.&quot; - Joe Lambert, co-founder of the Center for Digital Story Telling </li></ul><ul><li>The Call of the Story ( great link ) </li></ul>
  4. 4. DEFINITION <ul><li>What is Digital Storytelling? </li></ul><ul><li>Start with the art of storytelling. Add the use of technology and storytelling goes digital! There are many forms of digital storytelling that may combine any of the following elements: text, image, sound, voice and moving images, in a coherent story. It is the interplay of these elements, each of which plays a unique role, that gives this medium its power. However, no amount of digital magic will turn a poor story into a good one. </li></ul><ul><li>Digital Story Telling in Plain English - This You Tube video was created for Stanford's Teacher Education Program (STEP), specifically for the STEP Conference in June of 2009. </li></ul>
