Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling


Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling

Logo for Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling
Educators at all levels can use Digital Storytelling in many ways, from introducing new material to helping students learn to conduct research, synthesize large amounts of content and gain expertise in the use of digital communication and authoring tools. It also can help students organize these ideas as they learn to create stories for an audience, and present their ideas and knowledge in an individual and meaningful way.The author also participated in a one hour webinar for the MERLOT Classics...

My students have benefitted from utilizing this resource as we begin the unit on digital storytelling.  They like to read material on this subject from a subject matter expert ... which also reinforces what I am sharing with them in the course.

This website provides theory and methods for integrating digital storytelling into a course or curriculum. The why and the how are covered. It links digital storytelling to the history of storytelling in general, and gives plenty of examples.

I loved the website, it was very attractive, easy to read and go through the website. The videos are very informative and detailed which answer if not many questions that I had not even thought of. 

Technical Remarks:

should add more videos and topics

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.

This is a comprehensive website that can be used to give educators a thorough understanding of the potential uses of digital storytelling in the classroom. The website is clear and easy to navigate and the opening example is engaging and will draw educators into the potential of using digital storytelling in a classroom. This website is comprehensive and provides not only the pedagogical information about why these projects are beneficial for students and teachers, but also provides technical information of concern to many educators such as what software is needed to produce these projects and even discusses copyright & legal issues.
