Digital-Storytelling

Digital Storytelling is a wonderful way to engage and empower your  learners.

Digital Storytelling (DS) has become a popular methodology for teaching and learning  as it provides the opportunity of giving students a voice in the learning process. DS involves the narrating of a story in the form of a short multimedia piece which includes pictures, spoken and/or written text and sometimes sound or music. 

I have tried different kinds of digital storytelling with my learners.

Spooky Stories and Christmas Stories

We have produced SPOOKY STORIES and CHRISTMAS STORIES  where the students wrote the stories, illustrated them and read their storybooks to an online audience. To see these stories click on the images below:

Personification Stories

We have also produced PERSONIFICATION STORIES, where the students chose an everyday object and narrated a dramatic story from the point of view of this object. Click on the image to see these stories.

Personal Stories based on the California Digital Storytelling Cookbook

The most interesting digital stories deal with very personal memories and important moments in the lives of my students. We have produced personal digital stories inspired by Joe Lambert’s California Digital Storytelling Cookbook. These stories were produced within the  Erasmus project MYSTY.        Check out the website for more details about the  Erasmus project.

Our roots and our treasures

Encouraged by the success of the MYSTY project, I have tried personal digital storytelling with younger kids at NMS (Neue Mittelschule). In this project the learners explored their cultural roots and family treasures and produced digital stories in 13 languages. It turned out to be a really interesting and empowering experience for the kids: a true moment of transcultural learning.
