Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between two and ten minutes. The topics that are used in Digital Storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one's own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between. A great way to begin learning about Digital Storytelling is by watching the following video introduction to Digital Storytelling.
According to Bernard Robin, at the University of Houston, she states in her Power Point presentation that the educational uses of digital storytelling are immeasurable. She clearly shows that if this type of technology is used appropriately by classroom teachers its results will be effective in helping students with research skills, writing skills, organizational skills, technology skills, presentational skills, interviewing skills, interpersonal skills, problem-solving skills, and assessment skills. She also mentions that students will learn information from digital storytelling that will influence and improve their digital, global, technology, visual, and information literacy skills. The questions that arise around the practicality of using such technology have lead others to write about how digital storytelling can be integrated into the classroom to allow students to construct their own learning. In an article in Library Media Connection (2003) titled, What’s Your Digital Story? the authors explain that when we integrate digital storytelling into classroom projects we also enable students to construct their own stories. This pursuit requires students to become active participants instead of passive viewers. They further state that when students structure in narrative stories they are more likely to remember this information and commit it to memory as it is believed that our brains are wired in narrative stories and the construction of these stories help us to better cope with conflict and give us the ability to put incongruity into neat little packages we call stories. There is also reason to believe that by producing digital stories students become more critical when viewing media such as television, computers, and video games. They can now see how easy it can be to manipulate images and text to produce information that is less than truthful.
According to (Barrett, 2006) she sees digital storytelling as a means of creating a reflective portfolio that ties into a new type of learning environment whereas the instruction is student centered with multi-sensory stimulation. As students work collaboratively exchanging information in an active mode with real opportunity they develop and use critical thinking skills. The new learning environment has application because it is authentic and the learning is not isolated or out of context. She states that students will be able to:

• Communicate using a variety of media and formats
• Access and exchange information in a variety of ways
• Compile, organize, analyze, and synthesize information
• Draw conclusions and make generalizations based on information gathered
• Know content and be able to locate additional information as needed
• Become self-directed learners
• Collaborate and cooperate in team efforts
• Interact with others in ethical and appropriate ways

manuel leite's insight:

Num contexto de escassez generalizada de recursos e de necessidade acrescida de capacitação das populações, os cursos abertos massivos online (MOOC - Massive Open Online Courses), enquanto alargamento e aprofundamento dos ideais da educação aberta e do acesso generalizado ao conhecimento oferecem-nos, por isso, um enorme potencial para perseguir essa visão e essa missão.

manuel leite's insight:

MOOC - Massive Open Online Courses – que disponibilizará 40 cursos gratuitos nas áreas de economia, e-skills, e-commerce, matemática, ambiente, cultura, línguas e escrita.

Trata-se de uma iniciativa da União Europeia, sendo que o acesso aos cursos é gratuito, mas os diplomas e certificados são pagos. Os estudantes realizam a formação sem custos durante o período que deverá ser estipulado para cada caso e, para acederem a um comprovativo, terão de pagar entre 25 e 400 euros, dependendo do curso e da instituição.

O tempo de duração dos cursos varia entre as 20 e as 200 horas, podendo a “frequência” virtual de cada um ser feita num período estipulado pela entidade responsável ou de forma livre e controlada pelo estudante.
