What is 21 st Century Storytelling 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 A digital story is usually short in time. Only 2 -4 minutes long. It utilizes digital video clips, 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. The process of digital storytelling enables students to tell their stories with a compelling and competitive voice. -David Jakes
