Digital Storytelling

  1. 1. Digital Storytelling The Power of Text, Audio, Images, and Voice Presented by Patrick Woessner Image Source
  2. 2. What is Digital Storytelling? <ul><li>Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Throughout history, storytelling has been used to share knowledge, wisdom, and values. Stories have taken many different forms. Stories have been adapted to each successive medium that has emerged, from the circle of the campfire to the silver screen, and now the computer screen. – The Digital Storytelling Association </li></ul>Image Source
  3. 3. An Introduction to Storytelling In this example, the narrator ( Daniel Meadows ) provides a personal account about growing up during the period before the advent of personal computers, and how entertainment and important historical events were depicted in the media and helped forge a view of the modern world.
  4. 4. Relevance to Teaching-Learning <ul><li>In [Roger] Schank’s 1992 book, Tell Me a Story , he suggests that the cyclical process of developing increasingly complex levels of stories that we apply to increasingly sophisticated ways to specific situations is one way to map the human cognitive development process. Stories are the large and small instruments of meaning, of explanation, that we store in our memories. – The Digital Storytelling Cookbook </li></ul>Image Source
