Digital Storytelling is now being widely used in the classroom. Teachers are not only showing the digital stories of others but also having students tell their own stories and others’ stories. Students are asked to create stories of famous figures in history. Students are learning history as well as creative skills in order to tell the story of another. Through the storytelling process students also develop skills of reflection to understand history in relation to their own experiences.
Students who are learning English as a Second Language have also found benefits in digital storytelling. Having these students tell and create their stories lets them reflect in the English language and also develops their oral skills to speak the language.
