This link provides you the location of the published professional article that I used for this project. This article describes the educational uses of digital storytelling, the phases of the process of digital storytelling, and how educators can evaluate projects. Story Circles are a great way for educators to provide useful feedback to the students' projects. Students get in small groups and share the scripts that they have created and get student and teacher feedback.

Throughout the entire process of digital story making, teachers should provide feedback to students.
