21st Century StoryKeepers: Digital Storytelling Resources

21st Century StoryKeepers: Digital Storytelling Resources | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

Stories are not just for telling around campfires - they entertain, educate, motivate, incite and surprising to many also bring healing powers into our lives.

Mixing images, sounds, voices, and special effects together creates a sensory experience of well-written stories.
