Faculty Resources: Digital Story Telling

What is Digital Story Telling?

Digital Story Telling has become a powerful instructional tool for both students and educators. Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between two and ten minutes.

The process of developing Digital Stories offers students the opportunity to further develop their writing and critical thinking skills while developing technological skills that they need to remain competitive in digitally enhanced global environment.

Why Digital Story Telling?

Increased student engagement and skills such as research, writing, organization, technology, presentation, interpersonal, and problem-solving.
