Digital Storytelling for Students: Critical connections to traditional knowledge.

Storytelling is a powerful medium used by human cultures throughout time and across the globe, providing meaning, interpretation, and education. With the advent of less expensive and more widely available equipment, software and websites, students now have a means of capturing or creating stories of their own through digital media. This presentation will discuss the importance of digital storytelling as a means of connecting students to traditional knowledge, including how and why these stories are useful exercises for all.
