Storytelling- An ancient form of teaching and learning. Digital storytelling combines audio, image and video tools that harness students’ and teachers’ voices to tell, present and distribute their stories in a whole new way. Helping teachers integrate digital storytelling by using tools such as MixBook, Voice Thread, MovieMaker, Wordle, Animoto, Google Maps and Photostory. Digital Storytelling combines technology with communication, language arts, and media literacy skills by encouraging students to create new ways of communicating a story, different from the traditional paper and pencil linear narrative.
