Digital storytelling is the practice of combining narrative with digi­tal content, including images, sound, and video, to create a short movie, typically with a strong emotional component. 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 the storyteller to think carefully about the topic and consider the audience’s perspective.

The goals of this course are:

For faculty: to facilitate various learning styles and connect to students’ interest in technology

For students: - to develop their ability to use digital content and electronic tools as a means of personal expression.
