Storytelling distinguishes us from all other animals. Stories are how we learn, how we make sense of the world, how we transmit important values to each other, and how we share who we are. Technology tools now make it easy to combine images, narrative, music, and special effects to tell a story. Digital storytelling combines these aspects to make something that can’t be done by any aspect alone and the result is something even greater than the sum of its parts. The Center for Digital Storytelling has been inspiring people to tell their stories for a number of years. Joe Lambert’s seminal book, Digital Storytelling: Capturing Lives, Creating Community, deliciously describes the why and what of digital stories. Joe focuses on the story, not the technology, to enable us all to share ourselves effectively through multimedia. See examples and other resources at the Center’s website as well.
