Digital storytelling revisited.

Digital storytelling has emerged as an innovative practice that allows students deeper engagement with content while encouraging the use of critical thinking and technological skills needed to navigate the ever changing digital terrain of the 21st century. The integration of traditional and new literacy practices is evident throughout the process of creating a digital story. Students use and enhance their reading and writing skills during the creation of a story that ultimately plays out as a digital movie. Within this article, the authors describe how a traditionally trained fifth grade teacher moved beyond her initial avoidance of technology and reframed literacy instruction in her classroom to incorporate digital storytelling. The article provides an illustration of how traditional literacy practices can be merged with new literacy practices to enhance teaching and learning.
