Digital Storytelling:

Film, Animation & Podcasting

Website and Apps List Compiled and Curated

By Michael Mc Namara

Digital storytelling has fast become a popular activity in schools internationally owing to its cross-curricular appeal and the innovative nature with which students of any age can develop and showcase their learning.

This online repository of apps and websites is comprised of useful digital tools for filmmaking, animation making and podcasting that I have come across when engaging pupils/students in digital storytelling within the primary and post-primary context. The suggestions offered on this webpage are based on my own experience and are by no means an exhaustive list, but rather offer an insight into which apps and websites I, myself, feel work particularly well in educational settings.

I will update this list as I come across additional resources and would very much welcome suggestions in this regard. If you have used an effective resource when undertaking digital storytelling in your own context, please do let me know via the email address outlined in the 'Contact Me' tab above.

Many thanks and happy browsing, Michael
