Digital Storytelling

(Category: Literacy)
Everyone has a story to tell. Digital storytelling revolves around the idea of combining telling stories with any of a variety of available multimedia tools. Digital stories are short films made by students using computers and photographs, drawings, sounds etc. The short film/video can be created by an individual or group of students.
