Digitial Storytelling: 7 things you should know

October 26, 2012

I decided to go for an article about digital storytelling since that was a big focus this week and also because I wanted to learn more about the subject. The article by Educause Learning Initiative goes over 7 items regarding the subject of digital storytelling and why it’s so important now in the digital age.

The article goes into detail about what digital storytelling is, what it’s doing in the digital world as an educational tool, how it works (e.g. use of media, narration), Why its significant (education through media), where is it going, the implications for teaching and learning such as increasing the information literacy of students, and the downsides of digital storytelling such as copyright issues and unoriginality of produced work.

The article focuses more on the educational side of digital storytelling, though I’m sure there are so many other options for this subject.
