What is Digital Storytelling?                             

Educational theorist, Elliot Eisner said, “Humans think not only in language but also in visual images, in gestural ones and in patterned sound.” Digital storytelling is the process of writing a story, adding voice narration, visual images and background music, creating a powerful and meaningful event.


Here is a short video about digital storytelling.

  1. Hi there,

    We are putting together a digital storytelling workshop for seniors in our community, and are assembling promotional materials. Is it possible for us to use the word cloud image above for posters, signs etc?

    Thanks so much!


  2. Hello
    I am putting together a workshop about using digital stories as assessments with social work students, instead of relying just on written assessments Could I please use your word cloud if I reference you?

    Thank you
