Tools for storytelling

This useful tool to easily create stories was highlighted by Andrew Walsh (one of the many benefits of Twitter is that you get to know about interesting activities and tools). You can follow Andrew who is a Librarian at Huddersfield University, currently interested in Information Literacy, mobile learning, and teaching skills on his blog http://librarymobiles.blogspot.com/ or via twitter @andywalsh999

Digital Storytelling resources

“Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Throughout history, storytelling has been used to share knowledge, wisdom, and values. Stories have taken many different forms. Stories have been adapted to each successive medium that has emerged, from the circle of the campfire to the silver screen, and now the computer screen.” (Leslie Rule, Digital Storytelling Association)

For definitions like the one above and for many more resources about digital storytelling go to the Open Thinking Wiki page compiled by Dr. Alec Couros (Faculty of Education at the University of Regina in Canada).
