Digital Storytelling is the intersection between the age- old art of storytelling and access to powerful technology that is easy to learn and use. Stories have been used throughout history and by all cultures to pass on important knowledge. With the advent of flip and phone digital video cameras, easy to use software, web based editing programs, and the Internet we can now tell, capture and disseminate our stories in new ways and to a broader population.

In fact, during my research time at the Bodleian Library in Oxford ...
Bart Sutton's insight:
These annotations and other reading traces play a special role from the point of view of cultural and linguistic history, yet, up to now, they have not been analyzed in a greater context regarding their functional means as well as their textual and material tradition. On the one hand, these “paratexts” (Gérard Genette) belong to the rare witnesses of the historic and factual use and reception of books. Mark-ups in books help to answer the question by whom, when and why texts were read. Moreover, they uncover the process of knowledge acquisition and knowledge transmission throughout the ages.
