Education Uses of Digital Storytelling

April 7, 2011

We are just creating a digital story for a class assignment while others are creating digital stories to use to educate their students. I was looking on-line to see what popped up when searching the topic digital story and found a website that was created to help educators use digital storytelling. The University of Houston has a website that helps educators with software, examples, and links to anything that has to do with education uses of digital storytelling. When I saw this website I thought that it was a great source of information, since there are many educators that don’t know how to use technology. This website gives them the tools and can even help students who may not know how to use the technology it takes to develop digital storytelling. Take a look at the site to help with developing your own digital story.

    A workshop I took focused on the subject of technology as a teaching tool within libraries, and one of the focuses was digital storytelling as an educational tool. It can bring a subject to life, teach people new technology skills while having fun, and create a document for posterity. I love the resources that exist for this medium, and wished it was used more frequently within our school systems, and our public libraries.

    I came across this same page as I was searching for resources. I think it’s great. A lot of educators either aren’t aware of or don’t know how to use technologies, so resources like this are very helpful.

    I have been encouraging my kids’ school to look into digital storytelling and/or animation as an elective for the middle school. I think the resources in this website will show the principal that there are free tools out there and education materials to help learn how to use them – and that it doesn’t have to be some expensive production. Thanks for finding this!

    This page is a great example for Story Telling. I also came across this website. I thought it was awesome to actually make our own on YouTube. It was a great experience for me because that was my first time making a movie.
