A digital story is a 1-3 minute on-line ‘film’, combining the recording of your voice reading a personal story that you have written with personal photos to illustrate the story. Digital storytelling combines the tradition of storytelling with contemporary technical tools: Using a standard camera, computer, voice recorder and software practically everyone can write, tell, produce and publish their own story.
