(Pocatello)  Digital Storytelling

Added by: Kelsey Robson

Stories make a frequent appearance in our everyday lives, but are much less prevalent in the classroom. These resources will help you change that. Here you can learn more about the power of stories, the digital storytelling approach, and how to bring storytelling into your classroom...

1. An excellent Youtube channel called Future of Storytelling:

    These two videos are particularly informative:


2. If you're interested in understanding why stories are so compelling, and learning about the scientific evidence for our "attraction," read Jonathan Gottschall's book THE STORYTELLING ANIMAL.

3. If you're a science teacher, Randy Olson's book HOUSTON WE HAVE A NARRATIVE is an excellent read about why narrative is so important to science communication (whether that means teaching about science, or talking to the public about different issues).

4. Where did the digital storytelling movement begin? In California, with the Center for Digital Storytelling (now called StoryCenter). Visit their website at You can register for an educator workshop-which I highly recommend! The workshops aren't cheap, but StoryCenter offers a scholarships that's worth applying for.

5. Several files are attached that will help you implement digital storytelling in the classroom. There are two example assignments (including rubrics), and a sample storyboard.

6. I have taken digital storytelling into 2 middle school and 2 high school classrooms in southeast Idaho. If you want to use this wonderful tool in your own classroom, please don't hesitate to contact me for advice and support. I have many more resources I can share with you!
