What are Digital Stories?


Digital Storytelling is a process that allows media novices to produce brief videos by blending their voices, photographs, and other personal artifacts. This process exposes participants to multimedia technology through a meaningful context; their own stories. In the past few years, community digital storytelling has become part of the organizing and advocacy strategies for health-care reform, immigrant rights, adult education, and many other issues.
