Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling

Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling
Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories.
As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music.
We invite you to explore the resources on this website and contact us if you have questions, comments, or ideas about the Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling.

Photosynth
http://photosynth.net
Microsoft’s Live Labs project Photosynth, an application (and a browser plugin) that lets you stitch standard photos into a 3D panorama style virtual experience
Imagine being able to share the places and things you love using the cinematic quality of a movie, the control of a video game, and the mind-blowing detail of the real world. With nothing more than a bunch of photos, Photosynth creates an amazing new experience.
Photosynth is a potent mixture of two independent breakthroughs: the ability to reconstruct the scene or object from a bunch of flat photographs, and the technology to bring that experience to virtually anyone over the Internet.
Photosynth installs two programs on your computer: a Web browser plug-in for viewing synths, and an application (called "Photosynth") for creating them.

7 Things You Should Know About Digital Storytelling
Digital storytelling involves combining narrative with digital content to create a short movie. Digital stories can include interactive movies with highly produced audio and visual effects or presentation slides with narration or music. Some learning theorists believe that as a pedagogical technique, storytelling can be effectively applied to nearly any subject. Constructing a narrative and communicating it effectively require one to think carefully about the topic and the audience's perspective.

We Tell Stories
http://wetellstories.co.uk/
We Tell Stories has been - and still is - an interesting challenge, because what we’re trying to do is tell stories in a way that can only be told online. We aren’t adapting stories - we’re working with authors to create entirely new stories that are native to the web.
The first is by Charles Cumming, the best-selling thriller writer. Called The 21 Steps and inspired by John Buchan’s The 39 Steps, the story is told through Google Maps. The reader follows the trail on the map as the protagonist tells his story. How might you do this in the classroom?

The Center for Digital Storytelling is a California-based non-profit 501(c)3 arts organization rooted in the art of personal storytelling.
We assist young people and adults in using the tools of digital media to craft, record, share, and value the stories of individuals and communities, in ways that improve all our lives.
Many individuals and communities have used the term "digital storytelling" to describe a wide variety of new media production practices.
What best describes our approach is its emphasis on personal voice and facilitative teaching methods. We also offer workshops for organizations and individuals and serve as an international clearinghouse of information and resources about storytelling and new media.
The resources section contains booklets, interviews, guides and articles.
