Comment:

As a resource for introducing students to the concept of digital storytelling, this site is top notch! All too often one finds resources that implicitly associate "digital storytelling" with one particular medium (e.g., video), but this site takes a broader approach in its definition, examples, and supporting resources. The "More Web 2.0 Resources" section is particularly impressive in that additional tools and articles seem to be added beyond the initial site design. (A criticism might be, though, that the remainder of the site is rather "fixed" in place and doesn't appear to be added to. This may result in datedness over time.)

My students have commented that this site is the most helpful of the digital storytelling resources I've shared with them.
