Dr. Helen Barrett's Site on Digital Storytelling in ePortfolios

This website supports a series of Webinars and Workshops on Digital Storytelling

This series of webinars will introduce you to the tools and processes for building simple digital stories, provide you with access to free desktop or web-based tools, and enable you to share what you have learned from your participation in the Teach21 program.  In the process of creating your own digital stories, you will learn how your students can do the same to enhance their learning.

What is a digital story (or narrative)? A digital story is a a 2-to-4 minute digital video clip, most often told in first person narrative, recorded with your own voice, illustrated mostly with still images, and with an optional music track to add emotional tone. Digital narratives can be powerful tools for reflection, told by students or programs.

Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Digital stories derive their power by weaving images, music, narrative and voice together, thereby giving deep dimension and vivid color to characters, situations, experiences, and insights. --Digital Storytelling Association
