Notes & Resources

A Digital Story is a short movie, usually 3 - 5 minutes long, with the voice of the storyteller telling his or her own story.

The voice-over is supported by a combination of:


digital still photos,

scanned documents,

music,

sound effects and, sometimes,

short video clips.

By keeping digital stories short and with an emphasis on voice over and digital still images, students and home movie makers can make interesting and entertaining digital stories with readily available and cheap software and hardware.
