An Introduction to Digital Storytelling

In the following example, various video clips, including scenes from movies, television shows and news broadcasts, were downloaded from the web and then edited together to create a video introduction to digital storytelling. The purpose of the video is to show how historical video clips can be used along with still images to tell a story and hopefully, inspire viewers to think about how they can use digital media to tell their own stories. In this example, the narrator provides a personal account about growing up during the period before the advent of personal computers, and how entertainment and important historical events were depicted in the media and helped forge a view of the modern world.
