Digital Storytelling Resources

Typically, digital storytelling uses computer-based tools, such as computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips, and music  to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories are topic-driven and may contain a particular point of view. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between two and ten minutes.

Here are some great resources to consider for your next (or first) digital storytelling adventure!
