Digital Storytelling: How does it work?

Digital stories rely on images, video, text and audio.  It is fairly simple to create a digital story with easily accessible digital tools.  Rossiter and Garcia (2010) advise using discretion when creating a digital story.  Images and video can stimulate emotional responses and text should be limited.  They go on to say that the selection of digital elements used to tell a story should be carefully considered.  The key questions Rossiter and Garcia (2010) consider when creating a digital story is “does the multimedia element enhance the story or does it distract from the story?” (p. 41).
