What are Digital Photo Stories?

"short, personal multimedia tales told from the heart." Daniel Meadows (British educator, photographer, digital storyteller)

Digital Phot Stories or Digital Storytelling involves using computer-based tools to tell a story. Digital photo stories contain a mix of text, images, recorded audio narration, music and/or video clips. Digital stories vary in length but for education a digital photo story of beteen 3 and 5 minutes is sufficient.

A variety of topics can be used in a digital photo story including:
  • a personal recount
  • a historical recount
  • exploring life in the community etc.

This PowerPoint gives some more information about digital photo stories and their use in the classroom.
