Abstract

Individual definitions of digital storytelling have emerged throughout the research discussed in this paper, but a working definition that is often used describes digital storytelling as sharing a story through the use of multimedia such as digital images, music, video clips and voice narration (Armstrong, 2003). A digital story begins as a well-developed and closely scripted tale that is blended with images, digital audio and personal narrative and is usually saved in a Quicktime format for convenience. Stories can range from those of personal experience, stories of learning, and messages for social justice to historical anecdotes, documentaries and digital video reports. After a careful review of the literature it becomes evident that digital storytelling, the traditional personal story enhanced by images, narrative voice and music, has grown into several very distinct genres that still utilize Lambert's seven elements of story that guided initial digital storytellers.
